Question about DIY Fix for steering wheel

The black material on my steering wheel (I believe it is vinyl) is chipping or peeling.

I have not hit it with a key or anything so I am not sure what the root cause is.

When I search for replacement parts, I do not see this specific piece of the steering wheel.

My question, what DIY solution you suggest to prevent this problem form getting worse and ultimately look great.

1. Can I replace the vinyl?
2. Would black nail polish be a quick and dirty fix.

I appreciate any and all suggestions.

I had this problem on my wheel so removed the piece and got it sprayed in Matt black and it turned out perfect.
