Small nicks in the metal can be darkened with a permanent marker pen. It will fade in the sun but is very easy to reapply. Subsequent applications tend to stay dark.
Another trick you could try is to mask off the edge of the toe rail and wipe a thin coat of paint on it with a rag. The wiping action will blend the new paint into the old and add that slightly worn effect. If you like the effect, do the whole rail.
By the way the colour in anodizing is merely food dye. The process for bonding it to the metal is anything but edible!
