I am thinking it may help me with my aiming. Any thoughts on that?
So, what colors would work best that will work both indoor and outdoor?
It depends on the firearm and purpose.
Glow-On basically put some glow capabilities on your sights and in the case of Glow-On colors,some color to add a bit of contrast to the sights as well.
We recommend yellow or green as they are the best balance between day color and glow capabilities. Not much glow at the range because there is light however dim.
Recommended uses for the glow: A quick scan of , backyards, barns, home, stalk vermin, etc.
We recommend the small vial unless you have a batch of things to do like fishing spoons and such. Small vials are not famous for keeping paint fresh.

Is Glow-On the best overall solution for gun sights?
Frankly I wont say this is better solution than anything else on the market.
Basically there's a place and time for everything under the sun, for example:
Fiber optics, are great capturing light, nothing does a better job, but they are worthless in the dark, affordable but, not every firearm will accept them.
Tritium, is great for the dark, widely used by special forces, it's the best there is for stalking. Not every firearm will accept them, they're costly.
Nail polish paint or Testors model paint: Several bright colors available, it's affordable, good contrast, NO GLOW.
Lasers, great solution, work on batteries, great at the range, not so great on moving targets, eyes have the bad habit of following the laser not the moving target.
Red dots, great for any situation, they're fast and very reliable, widely used by the armed forces. Can be very expensive, bulky and not eery firearm will accept them.
No doubt there's more but life is short, so, salute.
