DecalGirl Review!

I already mentioned how I changed the screensaver of the kindle, but yesterday I finally got my kindle skin from DecalGirl!  Yay!

Here’s how my kindle looks like now…


Soooo pretty, no?  I love it!  It turned out great, and the quality of the skin is perfect, so slick!

I also bought a skin for my Toshiba Thrive (I’m still learning how to use my Thrive – it’s an android based tablet, so a steeper learning curve, but woot had a great deal, I couldn’t pass up!).


Looks pretty sweet instead of just a black cover!  And here’s with the customized screen saver…


And lastly, my iphone…  Yep, I used the same picture as the one from the kindle.  I love the back of it, but still getting used to the front, a bit too dark compared to the usual white.  I might remove it and just keep the back instead, because the back?  Looks great, specially with my black bumper!  (I took the iPhone picture with my Thrive, while I took all others with the iPhone – there’s no doubt the iPhone takes better quality pictures…)


I bought the glossy print for everything, and am really happy with my decision!  The colors are vibrant and it all looks and feels slick!  I was surprised at how easy it was to apply, it really doesn’t stick until you press on it, so you can adjust it quite well.  And they promised no bubbles and it was true to the promise – no bubbles on anything!

If you ever seen the Toshiba Thrive in person, you know it has a textured back, and it applied perfectly to the back, I really wasn’t expecting it to work.

The only thing I had issues with was the front of the iPhone.  I have a full screen protector, and based on their customer service I had to apply the skin on top of the screen protector – and it stuck to it pretty well, so it was harder to adjust, and there’s a couple of spots that could look better but I couldn’t fix without removing the whole thing (I’ll probably need a new screen protector  if I do remove the front skin, as it’s pretty stuck on there).

If you want a quick way to personalize your gadgets, I definitely recommend DecalGirl!

And if you’re wondering, I bought everything with my own moolah – no freebies on this review, but I like it so much I thought I share if you were ever considering it.  Now I’m thinking of buying one for my laptop too, but since it’s having issues, I’m not sure I want to invest in it anymore…  Our netbook might be the next victim, however!

    Thank you for mentioning your screen protector and how the skin interacted with it. That was what google lead me here to see. 🙂
