I've decided to go ahead and finally paint the sights on my P6 because honestly, the black sights are a PITA and I'm too cheap to go buy new contrast sights.
So, is there a specific type of paint I need to use, or can I just buy some off the shelf model paint from AC Moore? I'm thinking I should do a bright white base coat followed by a bright flourescent orange.
Will bright nail polish followed by some kind of clear coat work fine in lieu of actual paint?

I put a drop of white nail polish on the front sight of my KelTec P32. Works like a charm.
I do two coats of the cheapest white nail polish I can find then 1 or 2 coats of fluorescent Orange. Holds up well and last time I bought it each nail polish thing was 94 cents. Plus you'll have enough paint to do a bazillion sights.
Cool. Nail polish it is. Thanks guys.
Should I put any clear over the paint?
err. over the nail polish I mean.
I use paint pens from the wal-mart craft section. I use a base white coat and then if I want another color I put it over the white. I use this on carry guns and guns I shoot in a local pistol league and it has held up better than nail polish. I keep knocking the nail polish off on a holster.
I never have put clear on top of the colors- the trick is to get even coats and not too thick or it might flake off.
Sorry I'm late to the party. Cabela's sells a glow in the dark sight paint that I bought a couple of months ago. I plan on using it on a couple of guns the next weekend it rains.
