Review // Mr Nutcase personalised iPhone case

Back in the warm and lovely month of May, I decided it was time to get a new phone case. The one I had was falling apart at the seams, and frankly, it just wasn't me. Red and white polkadots are all well and good, but I needed something more personal. Luckily, the lovely people over at Mr Nutcase offered me the chance to try out a custom iPhone case. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance.  Not having a working laptop at the time, and being too impatient to wait until the weekend to commandeer the boyfriends, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was super easy to design my own phone case from their mobile site. 




Mr Nutcase have so much to offer for a wide range of phone handsets. Firstly choosing whether you want a standard plastic case, or a leather flip one. Then, you can use one of the wide range of predesigned backgrounds, or opt for using your own images. While the readymade ones were lovely, the lure of using my own candid snaps was greater. As you can see, I opted for a collage, with eight Instagram-esque square photos. All you have to do is choose a layout, agonise over what images to use, decide whether you want to add text and clip art, and BAM! All done. My order was complete in minutes, even using my phone!




Having used this phone case for almost five months, I've been surprised at how well it's held up. Granted, the top corner is a little cracked, and the colours on all corners have slightly rubbed away, but it still looks really well for something that never comes out of my hand. Considering in the last two months my phone has had two bad falls, and has been for a toilet bowl swim, it's holding up really well. The case itself is fantastic, the quality of the photos is perfect, it's just like the photos I uploaded. I was afraid that the quality would be diminished by putting them on the cover, but thankfully that wasn't the case. The case has a lovely matte finish, so fingerprints smudging the photos aren't an issue either. With a curious toddler, that's certainly a plus!



Mr Nutcase really do cater for everyone, and better yet, they offer free international shipping so there are no hidden charges. While this case was sent to me for review, they usually retail at £14.95,  I think it's a really fair price for something of such good quality. I've been sorting through all my photos since I got my MacBook, so I think I'll be making another trip back to Mr Nutcase to order more phone covers for my parents as part of their Christmas presents. I'm sure they'd love some with Caelen on them too!
