    Has anyone successfully put on a Skinomi carbon fiber shield? I am so shocked that Skinomi sent me another shield with my protector for free. I didn't know both were covered under warranty. I'm still amazed at their customer service. Anyway....I LOVE the way the carbon fiber shield feels on the phone but the edges are a little difficult to put on. Any success stories? I'm not very crafty...

    I'm on my second one. I love them! The only reason I switched it was out of boredom. But yeah they look sharp I think! I'm surprised more people don't talk about em.

    Did you put it on your Galaxy Nexus? If you did, do you have any tips or tricks? The last one I put on didn't work out so well. I think I overheated it with the hairdryer and melted the battery cover oops.

    The warranty replacement covers all their products (lifetime warranty, awesome!), the screen protector started peeling a little and scratched. I've never tried any of the other screen protectors but if I can get the carbon fiber shield to work, I will be very happy.

    I believe it protects it from dropping. The skin covers all corners and back of the phone. It is so cool I love how it doesn't change the shape or add any bulk. It looks really great too. There is also the screen protector that prevents the glass from scratching (I think-I hope). I found some pics on amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005OTKTQ2/ref=ox_ya_os_product

    from their web site...

    "The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Carbon Fiber Skin Protector is the clear choice for maximum scratch protection. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Carbon Fiber Skin Protector goes beyond your traditional Samsung Galaxy Nexus Carbon Fiber screen protectors, skins, covers, and cases. TechSkin is made from the same film material used to protect luxury cars, military aircrafts, and NASA space shuttles. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Carbon Fiber Skin Protector is custom made to specifically fit the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Carbon Fiber. Carry and protect your Samsung Galaxy Nexus with style!"

    so no, it won't protect the phone from impact when you drop it.

    I tried to put it on again and for some reason my battery cover wouldn't fit. I think it's the battery cover because I had the skin on for less than a minute and had a hairdryer on low cool setting for about 5 seconds.
