Yes, it will work fine.

Other have done it with super glue and I've seen no reports of issues with it

The strips of the bling was self stick. I used the e6000 (I think that is what it is called? ) for the stones around the mickey head chip. I had planned to use the glue as additional adhesive when I laid down the bling strips but after I saw how well it stuck to the bands and knowing I was going to be putting basecoats over it I didn't feel like it was needed. and Thanks! we had lots of fun decorating them. It was a lot of work, but they are awesome and we love them! I actually wish I would have made mine like my DD or another design I thought of this morning. Oh well, I am still satisfied with all of them.

The plain clear UV reactive nail polish does react to blacklight when on the MB

Nail polish won't keep loose glitter on the band though

Where did you find them? Do you have an online link?

Haha, I had the same thought after I finished mine. I did Merida, but after doing R2D2 and Chewy for DS and DH, I thought I should have done Leia. Instead I sewed some covers for mine to match the outfits I will be wearing in the park. That way I could still have Merida, or just wear it as a cute bracelet.

I have enjoyed reading through this thread and am excited to start customizing our bands.

1.Has anyone tried the removable vinyl cover bands sold on DVC Central? I'd love to hear reviews on them.

2.Has anyone bought & successfully used a glow in the dark polish recently they can recommend either online or at a big chain?

3. Don't have the polish color I want on hand and I'm debating whether to splurge on a more expensive polish or go with cheap. The opinions seem to be split on this. Not really a question just thinking aloud I guess.

DIY Vinyl Covers

I've been working on designing vinyl covers for our MagicBands in August (hopefully the pictures show up). I just finished a Frozen one for dd2 and a Mary Poppins one for myself. I hope to finish a Rapunzel (Snuggly Duckling) one for my dh. My questions is, has anyone tried using the printable waterproof vinyl? I have a Silhouette Cameo that I'm going to use with the template someone provided on here to cut them out, but I hope that the vinyl will hold up to the sweaty August heat!

Those are awesome!! Not sure how well it works, but I know people who use that vinyl on glasses and cups they design and those "sweat" and get washed and hold up fine, so I think that'd work!! How awesome!
