Since you’re reading this, I assume you own an iPhone 3G/3GS or an iPhone 4 right? Millions of people do in fact. But how can you actually make your iPhone stand out when (most likely) 3 out of 5 friends of yours own an iPhone too? The answer is, get a unique GelaSkin for your iPhone now! They claim to produce “the best skins on the planet!” and I personally couldn’t agree more. GelaSkins Inc. has been very kind to send us a handful of iPhone 4 and 3G/3GS skins for review so we can share our experience with you, right here on iThinkDifferent!



GelaSkins are removable covers for protecting and customizing your portable devices. They feature stunning, photo-quality graphics ranging from fine art prints to contemporary urban images designed by our growing family of artists from around the globe. Stand out in the crowd with personalized protection from GelaSkins.

Portable Art Prints:

It’s time to take art off the walls and bring it along with you to work, school, coffee shops… wherever! Personalize your devices with incredible art from our collection of over a hundred artists or upload your own images in The GelaSkin Creator.

Easy On… Easy Off:

Patented 3M adhesive make GelaSkins easy to apply with no residue left behind. The adhesive allows you to reposition the skin so you can easily get a perfect fit.

No Scratches:

GelaSkins defend your device with a durable anti-scratch, anti-UV coating.

Premium Materials:

After loads of research, we chose the best materials available. The advanced 3M adhesive contains patented micro-channels that prevent air bubbles from forming and allow for easy application and clean removal after years of use.


Material & Quality:

First and foremost is the extremely high-quality 3M material that has been used in producing these GelaSkins. The skins appear glossy with a fine criss cross texture, yet they have a silky smooth feel to them. The overall quality of the skins is top notch making the skin graphics / art prints really pop out with vivid colors and sharp text. As a protective skin, GelaSkins provide excellent anti-scratch protection for your portable device with real style. There are thousands of gorgeous predesigned graphics and art prints to choose from, some of which have been designed by leading artists from all over the world. In addition to predesigned iPhone skins, we also took the opportunity to design a couple of “custom skins” through the free Create Your Own option available at their website and quite frankly, the results turned out to be awesome!


GelaSkins Application:

Applying a GelaSkin on your iPhone is a piece of cake. It took me less than 5 minutes to get a perfect install on my iPhone 4. All you need is a little bit of patience. Unlike any other skin I have tested so far, the patented 3M adhesive of GelaSkins allows you to easily remove and reposition the skin till you get the perfect fit. The adhesive leaves no residue behind no matter how many times you remove and reapply. Also, the skin keeps it shape perfectly even after several attempts. Thus, the end result is absolutely flawless with no bubbles whatsoever. This is truly amazing since the fear of spoiling your precious skin can get to the best of us. But with GelaSkins, you seriously don’t need to worry about not getting it done right. Check out the image gallery at the end for pure awesomeness!



GelaSkins are simple yet gorgeous skins which bring a fantastic smooth, sheen finish to your iPhone which not only feels comfortable in your hands but also makes your beloved gadget really stand out in the crowd!
