Go with a new surface over the concrete - just be sure it is not going to be slippery when wet. With painted concrete it will wear first at whatever spot there is the most foot traffic and moisture can bubble up an cause even epoxy paint to flake off. If you want colored concrete the color should be added throughout the concrete at the time of the pour.
