It's definitely more lime than Kelly green.

I know you already got your answer, but there's a picture quoted in post #680.

It's pretty much the color of an actual lime, which, ironically, is more of a Kelly green. It really isn't close to most of my clothes that I consider lime. I think it'll work fine for you.

After looking through each page of this thread yesterday, we hit joann and target and got to decorating! Found pink and silver rhinestone stripes for DD6 on her pink band. So far just Disney quotes in black on my red one. DH was adamant about keeping his yellow one plain???until her saw the perry the plata pus stickers and now we'll be doing his band too!

Sally Hanson unique Shield works awesome as a top coast! Dries fast with gloss and comes off well if you make a mistake.

We still have about 2 1/2 weeks to go before our bands are mailed out but I think I have finally come up with some designs. I really love the look of the tattoos on the bands but I'm afraid I'm going to mess it up lol So for me and DD I am ordering pink bands, for DH I am ordering his blue.
For my band I have a nice sort of metallic/pearl purple(Sinful Colors-Let's Talk) that I am going to use to paint the base color, I have come up with 2 options on the design. I have a heavy multi colored sparkle(Sinful Colors-Pride) that I'm either going to use all over the purple polish or I'm going to only paint the Mickey Head with the sparkle. Either way I have a Lime Green I got at Sallys(Fingerpaints-silkscreen green) that I'm either going to paint the mickey head or outline it with. So I'm sort of going for a Malicifent theme I guess you could say and the lime green for dis boards also.
For DD I am using the purple polish also (Sinful Colors-Let's Talk) and I found a very tiny bottle of a hot pink at Sally's (Sally girl-cool) that I am going to use on the mickey head. I have some little nail rhinestones that are multi colored that I'm going to glue down around the mickey head for her.
For DH we are going with a dark metallic/pearlish blue (Sinful colors-Midnight Blue) for the base with either silver stripes or chevrons (Fingerpaints-chromatic Creation) and either a silver or highlighted Mickey head or possibly bright orange.

We are going with the simple look, I love the hand drawn bands but I am not that creative. I think they will still come out great, when I get them done I will post a pic. I had wanted to do something Jasmine and Esmeralda with mine and DD bands but I just couldn't really come up with anything. I'm going to keep checking back here though, maybe something will spark my imagination!

Has anyone used regular stickers? I was wondering how they hold up or if they need a top coat of something? I've been following the thread but I can't remember if anyone has used them.

I used regular stickers on ours. I put down a clear base coat then the stickers and then the top coat. I posted a pic a few pages back.

Thank you both so much!! That picture in post 680 helped to see it a little bigger than the small square of color on the Disney site. I still think it might be a little too limey, but maybe I could find a good nail polish to darken it up a bit?

The band is *very* lime green. Not Kelly green at all.

Excited to share our creations! After pouring over all 47 pages of the thread, saving tips and being inspired and impressed with everyones ideas - we created our own! My husband and I are off on our "babymoon" the first week of April - and my brother and his girlfriend are popping down as well for a long weekend while we're there. So tonight, we all got together and decorated our bands together while talking about our trip! Im *SO* Thankful for everyones ideas and tips, and hope you like our contributions! xo

How did you get the white paint in the groove of the Mickey head outline to look so nice?

I noticed at Walgreens that the Sinful Colors line (I think it was....) has out a whole batch of greens for St. Pats. I'll bet you could find one that you like. There were some solids and some glitters. Good luck! I just ran out of time to decorate ours, so I'm already planning what to do for fall break

1st of all, I LOVE all of those!

2nd, when I was doing mine, I lightly brushed the polish all around the Mickey head & it fell into the grooves itself. If I got some outside, I used cutips w/nail polish remover to get it off before it dried.
