So after 12 days at Disney I wanted to do a follow up on how my magic band survived and what I would do differently.
For the most part, it lasted perfectly! The problem was the initial bend to put it on. Both bands put small cracks on the band as I’ve noted in the attached photo. After it was on, I put a little bit of base coat on to prevent any more cracking.
I bought an extra magic band when I was down there so I plan to make a few adjustments. So if you plan to do one for yourself, here are my tips!
- Put 1 layer of base coat (I used natural nail by opi) on the band first. This should keep it from peeling around the holes.
- Paint like I did before.
- Limit my final base coat to 2 coats. When I had only 2, it was protected and bendy with no cracks, but I was concerned so I did probably 5-6 coats and that is what caused it to crack.
I had such a great time seeing peoples reactions and helping others with ideas of their own, what a fun project for a fun vacation!!
