I see some versions really seem to show the brush strokes and others not at all. Is this a technique thing or type of polish or just good camera work?

In my experience there is some technique to doing it. When I did mine, I noticed that the nail polish dried really quickly. Once you put some polish down you won't be able to spread it and smooth it out. I painted three layers to make it opaque. I started at one end of the band and brushed in the same direction all the way across to the other.

FYI I got mine a month before they were supposed to ship. I got the email that they shipped the day they arrived. Keep your eyes open for them. Have a great time!

So I already completed a green one (shown in previous post). Now I have an orange & red one to decorate. Instead of using all nail polish like I did on the green one, I wanted to see what kind of temp tattoos were out there (character or otherwise) that appeal to me. I found a few sites online that seem alright for characters & some other cute ones.

Can anyone recommend a store that has a good selection of Disney tattoos & others as well? Party City came up in my online search but I'm wondering where else I could go look at them so I can see them in person before buying..

I also saw on Etsy there are pop up stickers that I thought might work w/some crazy glue or Loctite adhesive. Just trying to keep options open here.

The original idea I had for the orange one was to do simple Tigger stripes on it but it doesn't seem too original anymore b/c I've seen a few (Great looking ones!) on this thread so far. It's still on the table as an option being that Tigger has always been one of my favorite characters.

I also am not a good painter & cannot draw a stick figure right but found just painting the whole thing w/different colors/sparkle nail polish was super fun!
That's exactly what I did!! I have a standard grey one from my last minute 2 day trip in January. Already have a red one from Dec and my AP blue one just arrived. So took the grey one and painted it a beautiful deep shiny purple, my favorite toe nail polish!! Looks wonderful!

Now to figure out what to do now. But it is fun!!!!

That sounds awesome! Purple is one of my favorite colors. Do you have a photo you could post (or have already), please?

Our AP bands have been shipped and are on the way. That means I'll have three more to decorate soon, and then another three before our trip in August. Plus my sister wants me to do her families bands for August too, that's 6 more.

I've just read through this entire tread. Me and DD are inspired. Can't wait to get our MB's so I can go to work on them. I'm thinking Minnie for my red one and princesses for DD's. Definitely going with sparkle nail polish for both. Thinking glow in the dark clear coat and tiger stripes for DS's orange one.

I redid my pink one that I had put stripes on, it's now the greenish gold one. The color changes depending on the angle. It goes from a bluish the gold, it's my Ariel inspired one.

The yellow one is my Beauty and the Beast one. I wanted bigger tattoos but I couldn't find any with just Belle and Beast so they are small.

I can see your 2014 bag in the background I bought one too! I absolutely love the 2014 castle design! It's so cute! We got the t shirts when they were offered as a limited time magic from the Disney Store in Jan!!

I just may have to drive north and add my MBs to your list of bands to decorate! Your designs are wonderful!

Currently at WDW

Hi all,

Starting my 3rd day at DWD (unfortunately leaving tomorrow) Staying at All Star Music. I've had several comments from cast members on my band here. I have a simple blue band with black and white polka dots. Staff say they actually haven't seen that many decorated bands.
My mom's been on the look out and said that she hasn't seen any either.
One cast member did indicate that there was going to be some big reveal for decoration to the magic bands. Probably at D23

Just thought I'd share.
