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.
I used "ice" brand from walmart for my glow in the dark polish (about $2). It works great on all the dark rides and especially under the black lights. You need at least three-four coats for it to really glow.

Okay, so I have no artistic ability, which means I asked one of my amazing friends to do mine for me And I LOVE IT!!!!!! I can't wait to wear it






I had a blue Magic Band, we used nail polish and paint brushes on it. I haven't used it yet, so I can't speak to the cracking problem. She painted it while it was closed and not flat. We used blue sparkly polish on the band, and some bubbles on the sides. I am so excited to use it

The tiara was a nail stick on from Sally's Beauty supplies. The brand is Chandilier Chic nail stick ons. The band all held up well throughout our trip, we didn't swim with them.
This time we are thinking about trying the tatoos.

There are some amazing MBs in here! Love seeing all your ideas :D

For our first set we just went with something simple, glittery nail polish and a UV top coat over our Mickey heads. It worked fab and showed up on all the rides with the lighting. We stayed in Pop for four days and got so many compliments from CMs at the resort and park for our bands.

We're back at Christmas time so plan to do something a bit more fitting to the time of year!

We bought the crystals I wore the green one, him the blue but my husband lost his day 5, mines a little longer -day 10, however because I knew his had fell out, I was forever checking it was still there and thus saved it from the floor a few times!! Rather disappointing as you would imagine because it was designed for the band you wouldn't have this kind of problem... Oh well, superglue next time!!!

Well I have finally finished both set of MBs for our upcoming trip in May n our AP holders ones. The red was a bit harder because of the dark color n DD wanted a specific character.

My AP MB


DHs AP MB


DDs AP MB




Now this set is for our upcoming May trip.



Mine


DH


DD



I yet again used temporary tattoos with base coat polish.

These are all of the MBs I've decorated for our past and future trips since MB testing started last year. Idk but I'm sure these won't be the last ones I'll get to decorate. 😊

Great bands!
Do you put the tattoos onto the band just like you would onto skin?

Where do you find tattoos that are narrow enough to fit the band? Everything I've come across seems too wide.
