I would first fill the chip with the appropriate color touch up paint.... then you don't have a point which is as noticeable to cover with something else.
The trick with any of the touch up paints is to do as little as possible, and take a number of applications to build up to what you need it to do. Instead of trying to seal the hole by painting over it 'lip to lip', instead use as small and dry of an applicator as possible and just touch the bottom of the chip with the paint.... let it wick off of the applicator and flow from the center of the chip to the edges. Only use enough paint to cover the bottom.
Let that dry for at least a few hours, and then repeat. Each layer will fill in some of the chip. If you can keep it 'inside' the damage, you won't get that ring around the crater......
The more layers it takes to fill the hole, the more depth to the color you are applying.
When it's all said and done, if you don't like the results you can still cover it with a sticker, etc. The nice part about this approach is you seal the area from rusting and blowing off more of the paint.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
