One thing - I put a chip-resistant top coat on the blue one, and you can't see it, but there are cracks in the top coat when I bend it. I'm going to have DS try it on and see what band holes he has it set on, and then try to apply another top coat to seal the mini-cracks. The other three have no top coat. The crystals are Swarovski flat-back crystals from A.C. Moore, super-glued on. So excited to wear them to the parks!
Those look fantastic! Is the blue one nail polish?

Thank you OP and PP for sharing your MB ideas.

This was my project this morning ... Mine is the Ariel teal one with black gems (there are 3 hidden Mickeys). The pink ones are my daughters' with little flowers, gems. The blue is my mom's and the red is my dad's. His was the hardest b/c black nail polish is NOT forgiving. My DH is going to do his own.



This was very easy to do. Cost me $20 in nail polish and gems.

I can't wait to wear these for our early December trip!

I want to know, too! I'm doing mine the same silver but was going to get nail polish. I tried spray paint on the end that tucks in but I was able to scrape it off when it was dry... then again, I didn't give it time to cure.

That silver doesn't look like nail polish. What about spray paint or paint pen, covered with a coat of non-chip clear coat nail polish?

Yes, it is nail polish - "You're S-teal the One" by "Nicole by OPI". The silver Mickey head is pil-based paint pen.

Posting our last two.

I added red nail polish to the red one I posted above (since the black had smeared a bit), then used a top coat. I now LOVE this one, too! Reminds me of Mr. Incredible now!

My DH decided to do his own green band. He used black Sharpie to outline the Mickey and then chose bright hot pink for the Mickey.

Guess real men do wear pink!

Thank you! Wanted to do something for DS9 but it can't be "girly!"

I started mine last night. Painted the grey part of the band with purple nail polish. Tonight I'll draw the tiger stripes on with my paint sharpie. then I will just need to color that in, and put the clear on it. hoping it comes out.

luckily, this is just a two day trip in two weeks, and we'll be back in january with all new bands. so it's a good test. just wondering if anyone else can verify that a polished band will work before i go walking up to the ME stand trying to use a pretty but broken band.

is there any way to check to see if the RFID is still working before disney? anyplace else use the technology where you could at least see if a signal is coming out? is that even a thing? I AM NOT A SCIENTIST, MAN.

It is impossible for polish, markers or paint to block RFID. (unless you are covering it with a metal-based product, that is)

What did you "paint" them with? It doesnt look like polish.

What did you use for the holly, gingerbread and snowflakes?

You did a great job. I really like them!!

My band with the Christmas cover I made for it. The picture doesn't quite do the cover justice; the mesh is a red & green metallic tulle that really catches the light.

And the band itself. The glitter coat is sunlight reactive, so it is clear/gold indoors but red/gold outdoors.

I took some glitter nail polish to three of our Magic Bands (the girls of course! ) I put three coats on it and it gave them kind of a frosted look. I'm thinking of adding a few more crystal Mickey heads to them still.

The guys of the group didn't want theirs all blinged up. I can't understand why!
