can a chipped tile be touched up?

We haven't even grouted the tiles yet, and my husband dropped a hammer off a ladder and chipped the face of a tile. Can a small chip off the face of a ceramic tile be touched up with something and be ok? The tile is not cracked. Is there a certain type of paint we should use? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

if you have not grouted you may want to take the tile up and replace it. other than that you have to try to match the color and paint it or live with the chip

There is a product called "Porcefix" (spelling?) - Home Depot sells it. It comes in a limited selection of colors, but if you can find a good match it may work.

Replacing the tile is the way to go...but..nail polish works pretty good..and comes in thousands of colors.
