Question Any way of removing case scratches?

Hi Guys,

I had a Windows OEM sticker on the side of my Tsunami Dream, and it was really annoying me, so I got it off, extremely difficult, but I've been left with some small but noticeable scratches.

I was wondering if there is any way of making the scratches appear less prominant or removing them. I'm not interested in repainting!

Can you give me any reccomendations? because the Tsunami has an extremely glossy black finish!

Shoe polish may do the trick (that stuff that cops/army men have on the toe cap of their boots) as the case is black, but make sure you chose the right one and do several coats...

Or try finger nail polish? Works like a charm.
