A decorated mobile phone or mobile phone case adds a spark to your overall personality, and as a girl I can understand the urge of any girl for having decorated mobile phone cover. Decoration can be done on mobile phone itself (except the screen) or a mobile phone case in case you want to play safe. Here I will share the steps to decorate a mobile phone, which is equally true on a mobile phone battery cover, mobile phone case or mobile phone cover.
First of all let’s prepare a list of items you will need to decorate your mobile phone
- Nail Polish
- Nail Polish Remover
- Masking tape (optional)
- Stickers (matching to your phone)
- Stick-on Jewels (optional)
- Other accessories if you want
Prepare for Nail Polish Paint
If you are interested in painting your phone cover or phone case with nail polish, then believe me it’s an easiest way to decorate your mobile phone. You don’t need any painting expertise in doing so. First of all do a patch test by applying some nail polish on a corner of the phone case or phone cover to make sure that your mobile phone is able to handle and sustain the nail polish color. If you see any problems, remove it immediately with nail polish remover or alcohol.
Decide the Design and Paint it
If you are not very good at painting and doing this first time then select a small design that covers 25% of the area on phone cover and let the remaining part plain. Draw the design with a marker or pencil and fill colors with nail polish. Choose the colors carefully. Make sure you don’t spoil the screen, buttons, speakers or camera lenses; best thing is to protect them with masking tapes. Paint the design with one color and remaining part with other matching color. Now you can find your phone different and good looking.
Let it Dry
Give double coats of the paint for a better finishing and let it dry for at least 5 to 6 hours. This is because nail polish will take time to stick and dry on surface of mobile phone case. It may look like dry but it could be wet inside, hence give it enough time to dry. Keep it away from dust and clumsy place. Make sure the painted part doesn’t get in physical contact with any other object, not even you.
Apply Stickers and Jewels
Once the painting is over on your mobile phone case then apply some stickers on plain area (the remaining 75%) as per your choice. Show some creativity in selecting and pasting stickers to make your phone more attractive. You can add some more shine by sticking crystals and jewels matching to the paint and stickers. Choose a sticking pattern wisely and try with little objects and then progress as your find interesting.
Precautions and Warnings
Make sure your phone is suitable to carry nail polish paint, otherwise get a proper paint that is suitable to your phone surface. Stickers and Jewels can be difficult to remove in case you make any mistakes or you change your mind, so stick it selectively and carefully. And apply any decoration on the replaceable part of the phone so that you can easily replace it in case you change your mind. For example you should do it on battery cover, or purchase a slick phone cover and decorate it so that I can be easily replaced. Never decorate the screen area which can’t be easily replaced.
