We just bought some nail polish and a few sticky gems....not expensive at all.

Thanks! That's what I was thinking too. I hate even wearing my watch in July because its so sticky out!

Totally agree, the small band fits around my wrist, but using the last hole on the grey band was much more comfortable.

It depends on what you want to do to it and how many materials you already have. I have a *ton* of nail polish, in all different colors. I rarely wear red/pink polish. I have about 4 bottles of clear coat and several glitter, too. I could, theoretically, not spend any money to decorate our bands.

I am buying a couple packages of temp tattoos though, so that will put me out about $10. I'm also using it as an excuse to buy nail art pens, which will cost another $15-$20.

re: whether to keep the band big or go small...I was right in between the two sizes and decided to stay big too. I'm glad I did! It gave me more flexibility to adjust the size, and from a decorating perspective you have more to work with if you keep the outer band there. I loved the way my band looked with a silver border.

I don't use nail polish so I bought a few bottles of the colors I wanted & one bottle of top coat. I found the two glitter ones I bought for $1 & change at Big Lots & the pink/purple one was on sale at Walgreens for $1. I got Wet & Wild brand top coat so that was also $1. I thought it was worth it. It turned out pretty good. But I'm waiting to post the photo until I put the top coats on & it's completely finished.

I'm FB friends with some company that was having a sweepstakes of I believe vinyl stickers that went on the MBs. There was a really cool HM one that was the wallpaper. I cannot for the life of me find the website now. Does anyone by chance have a link?

Just a few more days until our magic bands ship. Can't wait to see if the sliders that I made will fit.

We did a simple red band with a white Mickey and white polka dots and it looked great. BUT - then put a clear top coat on it and when it dried it cracked horribly and looked awful

How are all of you getting the pretty clear shiny top coat without cracking? Did I just have a bad (or old) bottle?

I am amazed by the creativity in this thread!!

I used base coat for our MB n did not use top coat do to the cracking after one if the first MB was done.

I painted mine with regular nail polish (no base or top coat), laid it out flat to paint it, let it dry and when I put the band on it cracked. So, I took all of the polish off, then put it together (I can wear mine on just the colored part, so I snapped the band together on the grey part) and painted it while it was in a circle. I also put on very thin coats this time, let the dry good in between, and flexed the band a little each time before adding a new one. I can get it on now without it cracking. We leave for Disney in 2.5 weeks, so I hope it holds up while we're there.

Ours are pretty basic compared to some of the beautiful artistic bands on this thread, but my kids love them (and my DH even grudgingly agreed that his midnight blue almost black band looked cool).



These were our bands from last Sept. They were pretty filthy (it's amazing how much dirt, grime, and goopy sunblock sticks to the bands after 9 days of use), but the nail polish covered up the gunk well.
