Enamels, fast and dirty. While still buy what ever is cheapest and do what is necessary to make it work, I've found that Enamel sprays run really easily if you aren't careful. They work best if you do just the lightest spraying (light as in "you can still see the original color of what ever it is you're painting), come back in 30 minutes (or however long it takes to become dry to the touch) and do another extremely light spraying - repeating until you have the coverage you want.
I've found using a traditional spray, with a flat finish, that you go over with a clear gloss coat, tends to yield the best results - however, this tend to be more expensive and I only ever do it when we have the materials already in the house. The difference being you can apply the matte finish paint in fewer coats (no idea why, it just seems to be able to cover more before you run the risk of drips), and the clear gloss top-coat hides any blemishes that may have shown up in painting.
But, with both of these, you are going to want (read: need) a primer. That is what helps to ensure an excellent paint job. It will look like a factory finish when you're done.
