    I would check Lowe's or Home Depot to see if they have touchup kits for chips. I have seen small bottles, almost looks like fingernail polish with a little brush, that can be used to cover. Maybe other stores that specialize in tile too.

    If you can find acrylic paint to match, I'd just touch them up. You may need to reapply occasionally, but just adding color to small chips helpsmakes them less noticeable.

    I would mix a little acrylic paint to match as closely as possible and dab it on with a small brush, then blot to blend. Or apply with a Q-Tip. Blotting will help blend it since the tile looks textured.

    Finger nail polish. Just keep building it up until it's level with the floor. Then use a ceramic finisher to put a shine on the entire floor. Good luck.

    I second the idea of using some paint that matches the color as much as possible. Go light and build up. You may have to mix your own batch to come up to the color match.

    I used some acrylic paint and blended some colors until I got it to a pretty good match. Then I dabbed it in with a small paint brush, let it dry and put some clear nail polish over the top of that spot. It looks so much better than the dark chip from missing color and no one even notices it. Good luck!

    Don't feel bad, Terry--- I dropped a glass jar on a brand new bathroom tile floor and chipped it. The Q-tip trick came from the flooring company that installed my new floor. Dab, dab, dab and it will blend in :)

    I have the same floor and I use appliance touch up paint. It comes in a small bottle with a touch up brush in the lid

    Hi there, you can use Bondo (the putty/paste used to patch dents in cars) to fix the chip. You can get it in a variety of colors and once it's set you can sand it smooth and level.
