These are awesome! Wow!

I LOOOOVE the glitter effect some of you all are trying! Especially the pink glittery one... I do happen to have pink glitter nail polish on hand but I just don't have the patience or skill to do any crafty things, plus I'd be worried I'd ruin my Magic Band. Plain pink will just have to do.

Which brands of Polish have you been using? I know when I try my glittery ones on my nails it doesn't come out like that so would be interesting to find out

I used nail polish for my band and it held up great. It didn't crack or chip and I didn't have any problems scanning my band. I just used inexpensive nail polish from target, I believe it was $2 or $3 a bottle.

Thanks everyone! I would say that so far, the nail polish does seem to be the best option. My kids keep playing with the MBs and the paint pen seems to be cracking / peel a bit - a lot more than the nail polish. I used Nicole by OPI, bought it at Target. I didn't buy the polish with glittery chunks - those looked like they would clump on the band, possibly. I bought the metallic polish. It was a blast and took no time at all!

For glow polish - Justice. Claires sometimes has it too, but seems to have trouble keeping it in stock. Even the dedicated cosmetic stores don't seem to stock it except around Halloween but the tween-trendy stores have it year round.

I'll post a pic of mine a little bit later, when I get my phone back from my DD. I started with a yellow band, and covered it in a photo-reactive glitter polish from Justice. Indoors it is clear with gold glitter; outdoors it is red with gold glitter. Then I painted the Mickey head matte black and "monogrammed" it with a C in yellow polish. The clearcoat cracked a little the first time I put it on, but I just applied a second coat with it on the setting that fits my wrist and that seems to be holding up well.

My girls want to add stuff to their MB now, too! So, did you super glue on and then nail polish over them?

How many coats of polish?

My DH says they will just all fall off once you actually wear them and bang them around ... But we still want to try them out!

Going to pick up stuff this morning.
