Ok, so should are or should I not use top coat on the bands? Right now I'm thinking of adding some temp tattoos to the bands and then some cleat or glitter polish on top. How can I keep it from cracking?

Use base coat over the top--it won't crack the way top coat does. So look for clear base coat and use that as your "top".

What do you think about some glitter nail polish. Should I do base coat, tattoos, base coat, glitter coat?

ugh :(

SO I was reading all of the boards dedicated to decorating your magic bands to try and find out what the best approach would be. Alot of people seemed to be having luck with nailpolish so I figured I would practice with that on my old magic band. I used NYC white glitter nail polish (two coats) then one layer of clear top coat. I let it dry completely and when I went to wrap it aroudn my wrist the nailpolish started to crack and flake. Anyone have any other ideas? Has anyone tried using glitter and mod podge?? how about sharpies? I feel like sharpie would start to wear fairly quickly at the park.. or how about sharpie paint markers??

Some are using base coat on the bands not top coat.
Some have used mod podge and it hasn't worked well either. Others have tried painting them while naturally bent instead of flat.

Some have used the permanent markers to outline the mickey heads.

one last questions, did you lay your bands flat or did you hold them while naturally bent to put on the tattoos and the base coats?

I didn't use tattoos, just nail polish & I left mine bent & closed when I painted it.

I used clear base coat, stickers, nail art stickers, nail art pen, pink glitter polish and then clear top coat. I applied the base coat first then applied the stickers. Outlined the mickey head on my band in black. Re coated with base coat, then applied the glitter coat, and then finally top coat. Mine is the only one with glitter. Same steps for all minus the glitter and outlining the head.

Did you have them bent while painting? Have any cracked? I have tattoos but I also want to add glitter to mine and DD's I just don't know if I should do glitter and leave as is or add another clear coat.
Thx for the info

I did leave them bent and closed. Need to check and see if they are going to crack when I open them. You are very welcome. I will report back again in a few. Off to check them now.

Just checked them now and there is no cracking when i open them. Maybe using the base coat and the top coat over that helps to keep the cracking from happening.
