    You can find a definition of the word paint in the on-site dictionary: a substance used as a coating to protect or decorate a surface (especially a mixture of pigment suspended in a liquid); dries to form a hard coating.

    A nice paint job is a well-applied coating of paint. In this case, I think it means that promising that something will look nice in a superficial way is not nearly as good as claiming to cure cancer.

    Usually you would hear this if you have had a custom paint job on your car, meaning something that you would not get on a standard car from the factory. Here's an example.
