Frequently Asked Questions

Questions About Our Skin Kits


  • Are the skins reusable?

     
    • Sorry, they're meant for one time use only. Our skins are not sold as reusable as they are meant for a one time use. They are adjustable during the application process but once they have bonded you more than likely will stretch the skin when you remove it. You can certainly change them up at any time as they are removable at any time.
    •  
  • Are the skins waterproof?

     
    • The vinyl is waterproof but applying a skin kit to your device won't make the device waterproof.
    •  
  • What is the design on the screen? Does the skin kit cover the screen?

     
    • Screens are not covered by the skin. The skin kits bond directly to the device leaving the screen exposed. With any device that supports wallpaper/screen savers we offer you the option of adding the matching image that finishes the look from the skin through the screen. The image you see in the screen is a downloadable file that is set as the background wallpaper and/or screen saver on the device.

      To protect your screen you may want to purchase a screen protector and install it prior to putting your skin on.

    •  
  • Do skin kits work with a screen protector?

     
    • Yes. We recommend the screen protector is applied first and the skin kit over the top of it.
    •  
  • Will the skin kit fit my device?

     
    • Each of our skins are manufactured to fit the specific model listed in the category. We rely on customers knowing the model and specifics of their device so that they can choose the correct skin kit to fit. However if you need any help just contact us via customer support (before you place an order) and we will try our best to assist.
    •  
  • How thick is the vinyl?

     
    • The skin kits we supply at NevSkins are made of premium automotive-grade cast vinyl with a special adhesive backing to prevent air bubbles during installation and leave no residue when removed. Our skins are strong but super thin, measuring about five thousandths (0.005) of an inch - that's thin! It also means they'll work with just about any kind of dock, charger or case on the market.
    •  
  • How much residue do the skin kits leave behind and are they easy to remove ?

     
    • As long as you followed application instructions correctly and applied the skin kit to a clean surface you will discover zero residue upon removal - even years' later.

      If for any reason you have a problem or it seems difficult to remove, we've found that applying a little bit of heat (sunlight, a lamp or a short shot of heat from a blow dryer) really makes removal much easier. On special finishes we strongly recommend using heat before pulling it off. This especially applies to chrome type finishes found on many mobile phones, game consoles, and laptops.

      Some devices require a little extra help. iPods skins, for example, remove best if you hold down the click wheel as you pull off the skin. Macbook skins come off easiest when the lid is closed.

      There are many ways to remove a skin, so we recommend to do what works best for you.

    •  
  • Can I use a clear hard case with my skin kit?

     
    • The skin kits are thin enough to work with most third party accessories such as cases.
    •  
  • Can the skin kit be applied to a case?

     
    • The skin kits are precision cut to fit the device. We do not recommend applying the skin kit to a case, unless it is specifically cut to fit the case (such as our Lifeproof case skin kits).
    •  
  • The skin kit covers the touchpad on my PS4 Controller. Will the touch pad still work?

     
    • Yes. The vinyl is very thin, ensuring your game play is not affected whilst your controller looks awesome!
    •  
  • Why don't the Apple MacBook skin kits cover the bottom?

     
    • The underside of the MacBook is left exposed to ensure easy access to the removable panel there and because fully covering with vinyl, a device that heats up and needs to 'breathe' to cool down, is not the wisest option.
