Help for "Horrible Tile" in My Rental Apartment?

Q: We just moved from Las Vegas (newer homes) to a rental in Dallas/Ft Worth area (older home) This place is much smaller, and there is one teeny tiny bathroom as opposed to the two large ones I had before. My question is about the tile. It is a teal marblish tile with pink accents and a pink tiled counter. Someone before us decided to paint some tiles white, did not do it properly and did not finish, so now part of the tiles are chipping white, but it is not consistent.

Since I am a renter, I cannot remove the tiles and not even sure where to go with this bathroom. Since it is so small it is right in your face. They even painted the soap dish, which is horribly pitted now.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this bathroom, especially the tile? I am open for any project that will not make the landlords too upset, but I do not want to drop alot of money into this either since it is not mine. Help!!
