Paint for front sight bead.

I've got Williams F/P reciever sights mounted on several of my Lever Guns.  I want to paint the front sight beads white for low light shooting.  Which type of paint should I use?

i've used hot pink, lime green, and florescent orange fingernail polish on some front sights and it did fairly well...if painting the sight permanently though, it may be a good idea to dimple the bead (assuming the bead is metal) with a small punch to insure that whatever type of paint you choose stays put, but if you're really dead set on coloring the front sight, i'd skip the paint and buy a williams firesight to replace the factory bead.
