Review:: DecalGirl Elephant Skin

 Sunday, August 5, 2012

Nothing like waking up to a Sex and the City Marathon. Am I the only one who will not turn off the tv when satc is on even if Ive already seen the episode!

I even have a couple episodes on my Ipod. Speaking of my Ipod Ive had my classic 30gb for about 6 years. Why buy a new one when its not broken! Ive had a lot of good times with my little ipod but now I mainly use to hook up my music in my car. I dont plan on getting a new one and I hope mine last forever!

My Ipod is the classic black front and metal back. Nothing special! When I realized that maybe its time to spice up my Ipod I went straight to DecalGirl.

For those of you who have not been to DecalGirl's site yet let me explain. DecalGirl is one of the leading companies that specialize in skins for ipods, iphones, ipads and all kinds of handheld technology. One click look at the website and youll find hundreds of awesome designs ready to be made into a skin.

So Many Cute Designs

It was so hard for me to choose what design was right for my little Ipod but I finally settled on this one.

I love the black, white, and red color combination and really who doesn't love elephants!

I got both the matte and high gloss version. Both DecalGirl kits look great but personally I like the shinier version a little better. If you dont like your skins to be as glossy than the matte is for you. You really cant go wrong. The matte is better for people who worry about thumb prints and gloss are for people like me who use the ipod through a device and rarely use it in hand. 

The stickers both came in a sticker skit. Applying the sticker was pretty easy. The decals were thick and of great quality. They did not bubble but I think for the ipod classics they were just .00001% too big. It was tough for me to get the perfect fit but I think I did great. I am very satisfied with the DecalGirl skin.

I love the results. The design itself is just so cute. I can't stop looking at my once ugly little mp3 player. Now I want a skin for my Ipad, ipad and phone!

I would definitely recommend a skin from DecalGirl. I enjoyed the selection, quality, and overall product. For those of you who want to pick out a pretty premade skin this is your site!

Can we just talk about how cute the designs are! If you are using a device that allows you to have a wallpaper background DecalGirl has one that matches every skin! DecalGirl has some really great artists making the designs. I love all of Valentina Ramos's designs.

Which DecalGirl design is your favorite? Do you use skins/stickers for your technology?

This looks so cool! I thought I was the only one who still had a classic iPod. Glad I'm not :) I can see myself buying one of these for my iPod.
