I used just good ol model paint from Walmart, not sure of the brand. I had my logo bright green but decided I liked gold more after I did my shotgun

I used nail polish as well. Smear it on nice and thick and then remove it with a cotton ball and non-acetone nail polish remover. Came out perfect.

Being a polymer lower you have to be SURE you use non-acetone if you go this route.
