    courtesy of best skins ever which cost 8.99 but they have a 25% off discount going on. didnt apply the skin perfectly but its good enough. fyi, first and last shot was taken with a ricoh gr II

    After letting it sit overnight (no more bubbles; minor imperfections but that's okay with me)

    Waiting for mine in the mail. Slickwraps has a deal if you purchase a iPhone 7 skin they'll throw in an extra one plus a tempered glass screen protector. Only valid until 25th of September

    honestly would rather get a tempered glass protector from a reputable source like amfilm. some of the tempered glass protectors are pretty bad.

    It'll take you WEEKS to get anything from slick wraps. I loathe that company....

    I always wondered if you could take it to a vehicle wrap place that does clear bra's. Firstly they would get it fitted PERFECTLY and they are almost invisible. They could also get it wrapped around the edges of the phone. And those clear 3m wraps they make for vehicles are tough as nails.

    There has to be someone eventually who does vehicle wraps that does it to their jet black phone. Otherwise it would be pricey. Its not so much the material that is expensive its the labor.

    But that is advanced thinking really, you can't beat 8.99 and the joy "or not" of doing it yourself lol.

    Thank you for posting this! I ordered the same thing from them to try out given my Jet Black Plus ever arrives.

    Thanks for the clear pics! I'm thinking of getting some BSE skin for my 7+ matte black too!

    Thanks for the pics! Can you post more detailed pics of the corners, speaker holes, and all edges?

    Is it true 360 protection or are there small gaps in the corners?

    notice the fingerprint marks on the side pic. thats not removable since its inside the sticky side. important to not get prints on the sticky side when installing

    if done right there will be no gaps. only gap is the front bezel, and the speaker grills.

    Thanks! Looks really good!

    Do you find that the edges pick up lint?

    Thanks. If you ever reinstall, a good way to avoid fingerprints is to use scotch tape on the non-adhesive side to use as holders so you can move the skin without getting your prints on the inside.

    Same. My last skin from them arrived one month later and they told me that they didn't have in stock Also their cutting is terrible, this was my second item from them and again the skin was not cut perfect. I had best skins ever and it came out perfect. The only thing I like about SW is that they have changed the material for the Naked series and now it's more clear, the old was too matte.

    Just put my order through for 2x back wraps from BSE. Hopefully they come in the next 2 weeks.

    Also ordered Godosmith 3D glass protector to complement the back wrap. Can't wait!

    These things are hard to get 100% perfect anyway. But at least you know that it'll be in great condition when you get rid of it.

    Just wet your fingers with the solution before you handle the skin to avoid that fingerprint issue

    My base skins shipped Friday. I got a matte for the black phone and a glossy for the jet black phone. Now I get to decide which combo I'm keeping

    How long did it take for the streaks to come out? I'm using a different brand. Slickwraps. It installed pretty easy but I notice the streaks. I will wait a few hours to see if they clear up.
    Thank you in advance

    What streaks are you referring to? Here are a few pics after letting it settle down overnight. The last remnants of bubbles have all but disappeared. There are some minor imperfections but I'm totally fine with it. I have an extra set that I can use in the future.

    IMG_0251.JPG I'm sorry. It's a little bubbly. Was wondering did your look like this after applying?
    --- Post Merged, Sep 24, 2016 ---
    I didn't want to leave it on all night if it was wrong. Didn't want to make it harder to pull off in the morning. If it still looked like crap. Lol

    Looks pretty rough haha. Did you make sure to squeegy out the liquid? Use a credit card to and slide it across the phone to remove the excess liquid. Shouldn't look like that if you squeegy it. What kind of liquid did you use? I used a spray bottle with water + a few pumps from a soap bottle and mixed it.
