I've used Toast skins before (toastmade.com) on my Nexus 6P. Cool idea. Gave them custom artwork and they laser etched it. Fit well also. Would use again. Thicker than slickwraps and dbrand etc though

Hands down dbrand. I have the dragon skin on all of my phones since I don't like cases. It has good grip and looks different. I tried the white dbrand and I didn't like it as well. I also use the skin to hide the black magnetic patch for the Mountek mount.

I have a Toast Made wood skin (actual wood) on my Nexus 6P. Application was very easy, did not require a hair dryer. Fit was effortlessly perfect, and wood side button covers are very nice. They are unfortunately one time use, and a bit pricey, but the feel in the hand is great, and at a little less than a millimeter thick (of wood), it does offer a very, very small amount of protection from scratches (and a drop on concrete on one of my corners).

Their store page for the Pixel 2 doesn't really work yet (CS said they were still uploading pictures and renders). I put in an order today for a custom one in the vein of the Nexus 6P 'Adopted Nexus' inlay and etch option, with Ebony main, and Ash inlays, and no branding. I'l post final price and pictures once I get it.

This isn't a picture of mine, but it is the exact same design and wood options I chose. Believe it or not mine actually looks better than the one pictured due to aging, minor wear, and patina (because its actual wood). Definitely the best phone accessory purchase I've made in the decade of such purchases I've made (excluding headphones).

I bought the black matte Dbrand skin with the red G and absolutely loved the way it looked. But I had to take it off and put my case back on because it was too slippery. Worked great when my hands were a little "sweaty" but my hands are usually pretty dry. How is the grip on the dragon and carbon fiber skin? Do they have more a shiny plastic feel? The matte feels exactly like if you didn't have the skin on. It feels like the paint on the XL itself.
