    I got my BestSkinsEver yesterday, and I put it on.
    I guess I put too much water during the application, so my home button didn't respond when I tested it in the morning today. After a few hours, the home button started responding today, but the screen was messed up.

    It looks like there's water within the screen. There are shades on the bottom of the screen.

    (And just right now, my Home button stopped working again.)

    Is there anything I could do to fix these things?

    Here's a picture of the screen:

    Yeah, I did that overnight, and it's starting to go away.
    Thanks. I gotta be careful next time.

    Why did you need to use water in the first place? I don't understand.

    The skin that I bought requires a water based solution since it's really sticky, and it's impossible to do a redo unless you put that solution over it.

    (I bought the BestSkinsEver, so it didn't come with any spray like the InvisivibleSHIELD did.)

    Well today, it completely dried out, and it's working fine now!

    Glad you fixed the problem. Great news.

    Big round of applause for the bowl of dry rice.

    You probably used way too much solution. I usually make sure that there's only a very thin film of soapy water on my skins before I apply them. Squeegee as much off as you can with your fingers before applying.

    It's good that the rice helped though. Hopefully you didn't trip your water sensor.
