Default Best wax to cover stone chipped Carbon black?

My car is in need of a front end respray, but itís going to have to wait a while, maybe later in the year.
Is there anything I can do to cover stone chips on the bonnet which are white in appearance in the meantime?
The car has been fully detailed, paint correction etc, I use the 2 bucket method, snow foam etc, but the front end peppering lets my car down, is there anything polish/was that can help to lose the dandruff effect?

You can buy certain polishes from the likes of Halfords that are specifically for certain colours and come with a stick of coloured wax too. Think it’s like turtle wax type deal so some budget **** but I used to use it for this exact purpose when I was like 18 on my black 328i and it works pretty well. I want to say it was called colour magic iirc.
