    You could mask it carefully and spray it with a 'candy apple' green, or prime it and use a metallic green.

    I think the candy apple would look cool, but without priming it will be a fragile finish.

    You could also prime it, apply a silver (or maybe gold) base coat then apply candy apple over it.

    Lots of possibilities.

    What I'd do is look for a car with the metallic finish I want, make a note of the make and model (and guess the year), then go to Pep Boys or similar place and pick up some primer, sandpaper (including really, really fine grit) and the appropriate "touch-up" spray paint for that car.

    Sometimes the can itself will include the make/model it's designed for, or you can do some research beforehand (there's probably an online forum for that make of car) and find out the paint code, or find out what standard touch-up color is close enough.

    you could always try a quality nail polish.....something anti-chip...then you could coat to ur taste, letting the metal shine thru if you like.
