Question I Want to Paint My Chrome Lip Red...help?

Yeah, thats right, I want to paint my chrome lip red.
is this even possible to do on my own...(saving money) and not looking like a POS.

or should I just have a professional shop do it? (and take all my money lol)

dont mind everything else that is photoshopped in this picture lol



THANKS!

Lipstick is an easy way to make them red... They might even have one in your car's color.

I've always wondered this myself though. I want to keep my wheels (for cost reasons) but get them black, or possibly black and yellow somehow, but didn't know if they can do anything and make it look right with chrome.
