Since most interior walls have wall paper I'd try to find as close to the color as possible caulk.

I agree with Medico.You can go to HD or Lowes and in the paint Dept.and find spackle or putty in different colors that might match and one other thing is if the nail hole is not flat you can gently press it flat before you use the putty.Good Luck.

Toothpaste is a quick temporary filler. If you want it done right, wood-filler, as most interior walls are 1/8" luan with a covering.

Smile Fill holes

Just a thought, the wood grain colored plugs you get with some of the desks and cabinets to plug the screw holes. Think that many hardware or Lowes, Home Depot, might stock different size and colors. You may have to slightly enlarge the holes to fit the plug though.

When I was in college, we used to use toothpaste. But then we only had to get past the end-of-year room inspection.

Yea but when you paint over toothpaste it will bleed through the paint. A good paintable calling will work. Behind the thin wallboard is foam so be careful do not use anything petroleum base because it will melt the foam.
