Any ideas, hints or tips would be great thank you so much!!

I agree would love to know also. Have you tried it yet. Would love suggestions. Mine should be arriving any day and I don't live close to a store to get more tattoos.

What kind of tattoo is that Cinderella? The tattoos I've seen aren't as clear!

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you underastand?

For those of you who used nail polish, did the bands smell bad even after they dried?

Cinderella band followup

I am bad at blogging so I hope this shows up where its supposed to! The reason the tattoo is solid is because I laid down a flesh color of the shape before adding the tattoo. Hope that helps!

We got our magic bands today in the mail and I went fast to work after we put DD to bed. Today I also went to Michaels for some paintbrushes and stumbled upon this scrapbook aisle that was basically FULL of bling for scrapbooks (had clear adhesive strips on the underside of the crystals.) and bought 2 bling rolls one for DD band and one for myself and a sheet of square bling that is faceted in a way that really makes it shine. I also picked up some of the e6000 glue or whatever it is, going to paint that on and stick the crystals to the band with that. If you want a little bling on your bands, check out Michaels, they have every shape color & variety you could ever think of! They even had a mix of pearl/rhinestone bling that was very pretty.

Now I applied the first coat to our bands and some tips I wanted to share
1-We used the Sinful colors line found at walgreens & Walmart. 1.99/bottle, I have to say the polish went on very well and probably only needs one coat. I went ahead and did two just to touch up a few areas. No cracking yet

2-We found that going over a small area with longer strokes quickly was the best method. I didn't scrape the side of the brush as I do when painting my nails I just dipped in the paint and starting painting. I did find that if you hesitated or tried to 'fix' a smudge or something like that the polish would start to 'set' and that made it more difficult to blend in where you start painting again. We didn't get a quick dry polish either.

3-Up down strokes vs. side to side-I tried both, I think up/down is easier because that is the natural shape of the band.

4-I think the BIGGEST thing is to get a similar color of magic band that you plan on painting the band. Ex-mine and DD I painted a jewel toned purple, so we got pink bands. DH band is painted a metallic royal blue, he got a blue band. I think it just helps the base color show up even that much better.

Bands are drying now and tomorrow I will start to put on the finishing touches let that dry and Friday evening I will clear coat them with base coat. I love the look of the tattoos I was just too afraid I would mess them up so we decided on the polish method. I primarily just used the polish brush however I did have to get the insides of the pink spots (where the grey connects to the pink band) with a finer detailing brush. Once we get completely done with them and they have dried I will post this weekend.

Got ours done! Except DH (the blue one) need to put the base coat on and paint the Mickey head a few more coats with the lime green.

DD Magic band (we ordered her a pink one and also took the grey wrap off since she needs it extra small)


My band


DH band


Here are some of the supplies I picked up at Michaels for mine and DD bands. These worked GREAT, I just cut/trimmed the rhinestone strips to the length/width I needed.


The blue & purple polishes were the Sinful Colors brand, hot pink was a very small bottle I picked up at Sallys, the lime green, silver and the base coat were also from Sallys I believe they were the Fingerpaints brand? The silver looks really good, almost holographic.

Love your bands. What did you use for glue? Or where they self-stick?

I found Mickey head rhinestones that are the exact same size as the Mickey head on the magic band! My plan was to stick the rhinestone Mickey on top of the Mickey head on the bands. Simple but sparkly. Does anyone have experience with using rhinestones on the hard chip/sensor part of the band? I'm thinking it would work just fine, but I want to make sure.
