Then you buy a cover! lol

Actually it comes off rather easily using nail polish remover. I took mine off 2 times before I was happy. It is also addicting though, I keep wanting to add lol I decided to outline Mickey's head

We had 4-5 coats over the Mickey head sensor and it worked great!

Barbie pink is a good way to describe it!

I wish people were posting pictures of the covers being sold at WDW. I'd love to see some! Glad to know nail polish remover works! How did you do the sides? A nail polish pen? I can't see how a brush would make that neat of a line!

Thanks I started using that term when we had our Disney wedding and our colors were pink and green. I didn't want a pastel/baby pink color, so I started calling it Barbie pink and people knew what I meant

Which sides? The gray edges I did every carefully with a regular nail polish brush. The lines between the colors I did with a nail art pen. Have to be careful with that one though because if its put directly onto a band it will leave a slight stain. The mickey head outline I did with a fine point sharpie.

Also, if you truly didn't like yours and didn't want to pay for a cover or Band-Its, you can get a new band from the front desk. It will most likely be gray, but I did hear others were able to choose. Just tell them you forgot/lost your original one. Disney just has to reassign all your info to the new band. You could even decorate the gray band in your room with a sharpie! So there are options. But I say, go for it! This is actually one of the easiest Disney craft projects.

Has anyone tried painting on their MBs yet? With (I guess) plastic friendly weather proof paint? I really want to paint some characters on my MB, but I'm worried it won't work. :/

We got our Magic Bands today and blinged them out and are so excited to wear them in 24 days!!!









We used the nail polishes in the above pictures. The jeweled stripes are Kiss Nail Artist Stickers that I cut into strips. We are very happy with our bands and are so excited to wear them. We both have small wrists, so we were able to remove the outer grey band.
