Dark Blue Paint in Kitchen

I am brand new to DIY. I have just painted my kitchen a dark blue. The paint job is okay, but I am noticing streaks behind my sink where water has splashed the wall. I thought they would dry, but now they appear to have stained the paint. Is there any way to "protect" the paint behind the sink with some sort of sealer??? Thanks for any advise!

Dark colors are often a bit touchy. Especially if the paint hasn't cured first. Did you use flat or enamel? Dark colors don't always touch up but I would try anyway. You may need to repaint the area behind the sink. Go wall to wall or some other stopping point to minimize any difference that may show from 2nd coat of paint.

Two walls of my bathroom are dark blue. I did a coat of clear glaze on top, which seems to help protect the paint from water. Don't know if it was necessary, but it certainly didn't hurt.

An acrylic polyurethane will work also.
