    Overview:
    ThinSkins is a Bezel Protection System, very similar to the LuckyLabs Spectra Wraps. They come in a Plethora of colors and are $19.99. For the price you get 2 sets. At the moment they DO NOT have a Verizon iPhone 4 Version but they are planning to release it soon.

    Application:
    Application of the Skins was easy, simply lay it on the bezel of your phone and make sure you get it straight over the ports and buttons. I did experience a problem in my installation, the bottom portion got stretched slightly while I was taking it off its backing, which is why its not aligned in the picture below

    Look and Feel:
    The ThinSkins do add a very nice look to the phone and will make it stand out in a crowd, especially if you usually use your iPhone without a case. The texture of the skins is very similar to the iPhone's metal band but with a more glossy feel. If you want to use a case with this, the Hybrid cases like Otterbox Commuter should be fine, but cases like the Incase Snap will have problems. It also works just fine with the Apple Bumper

    -Bottom Portion Stretched out Easily

    Overall:
    ThinSkins are a nice product and get the job done, however what might stop most people from making the purchase is the slightly high price tag.

    Ah okay, another question. Why don't you start up your own website?

    A very nice review. I agree the price is expensive but then so are a lot of other accessories.

    Did you manage to fix the stretched skin?
    Does it leave an glue once you remove it? :)

    Nice review, but no offense luckylabs is half the price and gives 3 colors instead of 2 and has AWESOME customer service so I don't see why anyone would purchase this over lucky labs. Just my 2 cents.

    @Austin - Not sure, I might soon

    @ChinaAzzi - I couldn't fix it, but it doesn't leave residue when you remove it

    @MeltdownBlitz - Agreed, but their CS is good too

    @iPhoneCollector - no it doesn't
