Cell Phones and Nail Polish

Phone Personalization

Now this is cool!  Especially if your teenage girl has a cell phone!

Because so many of her friends have the same phone, a teenage friend of ours decided to make hers different.  To personalize her cell phone, so to speak.  She took the front and back covers off the phone and drizzled neon nail polish in random patterns on both of them. 

She totally transformed her “looks like everyone else’s” phone into an “everyone knows it’s mine” phone!

Don’t you love creative minds?

We’re contemplating a cell phone in the near future for my oldest son.  I don’t think nail polish would work to personalize his phone.  Lol!  But my gears are turning to come up with something equally distinctive in the masculine hemisphere. 

If you have any other neat ideas for a girl OR a boy, do share!   We moms need all the help we can get in the area of helping our kids easily identify and keep track of their things.  Especially when the things they have become more expensive to replace!

I think it's very cool.

Now - - - if EVERYONE does this to their phone, will they each still be unique????

Keetha Broyles said...

Oh yah, and the way I keep MY phone different than everyone else's is I NEVER GET A NEW ONE - - - so mine is such old outdated technology it looks like an antique!!!!

Maybe I should show it on Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!!

This is such a great idea. I love it. I wonder if I can do that being 29 years old and having a blackberry at work. hahahaha

Thanks for sharing.

How about making a duct tape cover for your son's phone? A friend of my son's is a duct tape fanatic and makes all kinds of stuff out of duct tape (including an entire Halloween costume once, and a wallet). I'm pretty sure he made a cell phone cover out of duct tape, too. It would certainly make the phone distinctive!

That is cute. But for some reason, I just don't see mine coming out that cute!? There would be huge globs on it, probably a hair or two... but it's super cute! :)

Oh you could do it with nail polish. Polish comes in red, navy, black, white, yellow, green......

Go get some cheap ones, like Wet n Wild, or the tiny bottles in the bin that are even cheaper.

I'll bet no one would think it was nail polish!
