Default Nexus 5 skins with screen protector?

I currently have a Nillkin tempered glass screen protector.

Kind of tired of a case (since I almost drop my phone anyway) and am wondering if I could get a skin for my nexus.

Only problem being the fact that I'm pretty sure I can't apply the skin on top of the skin. But what will become of my nillkin? How will I protect my screen if I have a skin on the phone?

I have the same protector and dbrand allow you to order a skin for the back and sides only. Which is what I'm using at the moment

Hit "Thanks" if I helped
Nexus 5 - Stock 4.4.2, Franco Kernel
Nexus 10 - Stock 4.4 - Stock Kernel


Don't be a d**k, if you have nothing nice to say - move on (and let the moderators do their job).
Make sure you read posts #7 and #8 on your way http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2500184

Hello,

Lot's of people have installed SW onto Temper Protectors ranging from .40mm to the thinnest at .10mm. The key is of course to take your time and apply it as instructed. Slickwraps are very forgiving, however it does help to get it right the first time.

As a second option all Slickwraps come with an XD screen protector that fits in the middle of the wrap, thus adding that screen protection.

Always feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

I want the front white though, never liked the whole white on back but black everywhere else design that Google had, it looks ridiculous. All I want is an all white Nexus 5. (Nexus 4 had tempered glass protectors with the bezel areas white, but it seems that doesn't exist for N5).

Interesting Weston, I might give it a try then. If only that XD protector was tempered glass.
