    Just wondering if anyone else has a custom skin on their iPhone. I have this brushed aluminum skin on mine:

    I use an Invisible Sheild on mine.

    May I ask what the skin you are using is called?

    Sure thing, it's the Brushed Steel skin, which is part of the Metal Series over at Slickwraps. Website

    Really diggin' your aluminum one! It looks just like the replacement back plates made of aluminum. So sleek!

    As for me I'm currently using a custom designed Gelaskin! My phone is on the right, and one of my friends is using the Ghost Armor carbon fiber wrap as seen on the left! : D

    If I had a 4 or 4S I'd get that skin in a heartbeat.

    I use an invisible shield on the front and a clear rubbery skin on the side and back of my 4S...

    I use simple vinyl stickers (similar to those found on etsy) and on my 4, I had a NES controller sticker.

    On my 4S I've got a Classic Game Boy skin but have spares just in case.

    I prefer these sticker/skins over cases as they protect the back from scratches and don't add bulk like a case!

    clear skins are like the vinyl cover on grandma's couch in my opinion. I'd rather get a scratch or two.

    Totally agree. Especially on the front screen! I much prefer to tap and swipe bareback!!

    I just have an anti glare matte for the back. It looks good.

    I've never use a back skin. Do they feel just like screen protectors?

    Does the skin affect the flash at night?

    Here is a picture of my iphone skin. I customized it at www.styleflip.com. The cover is awesome and it protects my phone as well.
