This is after a couple days of wear and a few days snapped around my purse. Also, you can't tell in this picture, but it glows in the dark too
Love this one! Can you update us to make sure it works in the parks? I don't see why it wouldn't, but like PP said I know nothing about the technical stuff

EDIT: Never mind you already answered this!!!!!!

Definitely interested in ideas and pictures. I love the fingernail polish one.

There's a separate thread with pictures of one done with crystals but I'm not sure what forum it's on. Do a search for "Crystals" and it should come up fairly quickly.

Any more ideas or pictures?

I also love the nail polish look, what a great idea! I only have 9 days left so I may be trying that this weekend.

I had the boring grey one because the one I customized didn't work when we got there. So some people have grey for that reason.

Grey Band of Shame...

That is funny, I didn't think too much about it...when I was customizing mine, but I wanted everyone in my family to have a different color...I saved pink for my daughter...

I liked grey because it will match everything...right?!

Maybe not..."band of shame it is" - funny

I covered mine in crystals. See the picture the above person linked to. I don't know how to link to my previous thread.

I did purposely pick grey because it matched everything. Also, I made a little partial tuxedo band cover sleeve for my guy friend. So when we dine out, we can be "formal" together.

Also, if you are using crystals, most of which come in pastels, grey matches nicely with any color.

Love the look of the one you did with the nail polish! Glad to hear that it worked and stayed on in the parks. I may have to try this on mine.

I got grey for my aunt for the same reason, because it's neutral and I know she's more fashionable than I am.

Went ahead tried Mrsxsparrow's idea with the nail polish My youngest loves yellow and didn't want the color to change, so hers just got clear sparkles. The red mb I did last and is still wet from the top coat. I loved the way they turned out, thanks so much Mrsxsparrow!!!
