If you're looking for a way to set your Nexus 7 apart from the pack, dbrand has the solution: custom adhesive skins. These skins come in a variety of colors and textures – everything from pink leather to white carbon fiber or metallic titanium. They're pretty badass. Of course, we would expect nothing less from a site with such fantastic design.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

There are 9 leather colors, 2 carbon, and 1 titanium

Artem has been using the titanium skin on his Nexus 7 for the last few weeks, and he likes it quite a bit. His thoughts:

The skin is very sturdy - it's nicely textured, applies easily, doesn't rip (i.e. it's not a cheap thin layer but a high-quality one, made by 3M).

Application was easy - the instructions on the site are very easy to follow. If you're the kind of person who looks for perfection, it's easy to keep retrying as the adhesive doesn't leave residue and the skin itself doesn't get scrunched up. Just peel off the part that you're not happy with and put it back on. Because it's relatively thick, it doesn't bubble or create air pockets.

I'm using it to quickly tell apart my two Nexus 7s because one is 32GB and the other is 16GB. Now I can always tell which one is which. And it looks hot (I think). All of their skins do.

Here's a look at his shiny new N7 in action:

    A blonde walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the Loan officer. She says she's going to Europe on business for two weeks andNeeds to borrow $5,000.

    The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Mercedes Benz SL 500.

    The car is parked on the street in front of the bank, she has the title and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car collateral for the loan.

    The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the blond for using a $110,000 Benz as collateral against a $5,000 loan.

    An employee of the bank then proceeds to drive the Benz into the bank's underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the blonde returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41.

    The loan officer says, "Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire.

    What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

    The blonde replies, "Where else in New York City can I park my Car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?"

    I would choose the white carbon one :)

    A drunk was brought into a police station. He pounded his fist on the counter and said: ‘I want to know why I’ve been arrested.’ The sergeant said: ‘You have been brought in for drinking.’ He said: ‘Oh, that’s all right, then. Let’s get started!’

    Another one for all u APmen
    when I was a kid, I went to a psychiatrist for one of those aptitude tests. On the desk he put a pitchfork, a wrench, and a hammer and he said to the nurse: ‘If he grabs the pitchfork, he’ll become a farmer. If he grabs the wrench, he’ll be a mechanic, and if he takes the hammer, he’ll be a carpenter.’ I grabbed the nurse!

    A pirate walked into a bar, and the bartender said, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened ? You look terrible."

    "What do you mean?" said the pirate, "I feel fine."

    "What about the wooden leg? You didn't have that before."

    "Well," said the pirate, "We were in a battle, and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I'm fine now."

    The bartender replied, "Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"

    The pirate explained, "We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. Me hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook but I'm fine, really."

    "What about that eye patch?"

    "Oh," said the pirate, "One day we were at sea, and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up, and one of them shit in my eye."

    "You're kidding," said the bartender. "You couldn't lose an eye just from bird shit."

    "It was my first day with the hook."

    Two chemists walk into a bar. The first chemist says "I'd like a glass of H2O." So the bartender gives him water. The second chemist says "I'd like a glass of H2O too." So the bartender also gives him water, because he knows what he meant and had no conceivable reason to be carrying hydrogen peroxide, much less to be giving it as a drink.

      Have you received any notification of it being shipped? I emailed them twice (via the email I got asking for my preference and a shipping address) and have never gotten a response.

      Just curious.

      • jonathan3579

        That's funny you should ask. I got the first email notification asking for my shipping address and never got anything back. I just emailed again about 3 days ago asking if they were ever shipped and no response.

        • Ivan Samuelson

          So, I'm not the only one. Did you ever get it? I'm beginning to think this was a scam, not on Android Police's part, but on dbrand inc's part.

          I've sent 4 emails and each has been answered with an excuse as to why I haven't received it and that they've reshipped it. Still haven't received it.

          I just sent an email last week and then today as last week's email, for the first time, has gone unanswered and they were quick to respond before.

          Makes me wonder what is going on?

          • jonathan3579

            Even to this day I never got anything. They had wrote me saying they were busy and blah blah blah but that's where the whole conversation ended. I wish there was an easy way to get a hold of someone on AP even if only to say not to trust another giveaway with dbrand.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/doomstang Doomstang

    Yay I won one!

  • http://twitter.com/iBolski Ivan Samuelson

    Has anyone received their prize yet? I replied to the email and they said they would send out tracking information when it ships. It's been over two weeks and I haven't heard anything back from them. Just curious.

  • Ivan Samuelson

    Wow. It's been 3 months and I've emailed them 4 times and each time, they've responded back stating issues shipping to the US. Each time, they say they've reshipped it a different way and that I should see it in 7 to 10 business days and I STILL haven't received it. The last email I sent has gone unanswered and they were answering within hours.

    Has ANYONE else received their skin? I'm just curious as to what is going on.
