I bought a black official Google bumper case but it started peeling almost right away. I wasn't able to RMA it because I wasn't the original owner. So rather than have a case that was degrading over time I decided to strip it right down. Here are the results. I might still order a skin for the back not sure yet. As you can see it's glossy and still has the Nexus logo. If your wondering I used just my fingernail to scrap it as I didn't want to damage it with a razor blade or any chemical. Added Dbrand Skin see pic on second page.

I agree! But if you want to slap something like a dbrand on it, I totally can see that working as well.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Just can't decide which one.

Just wondering.. How long did it take to scrape it completely off with your fingernail? I like the look and may do this as well.
