They won't strip off the paint
If you’ve recently bought the Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite console, you might not be a fan of the simple, solid colors. If you’re looking to have a more personalized console that also makes your Switch look unique, there are tons of Nintendo Switch skins out there you can buy to do just that.
Some brands that make these Switch skins, though, may not use the right adhesive for the Switch. When people were first buying skins for the console, many of them found that the method companies used to stick the skin on would strip the paint off the Switch.
Thankfully, though, there are plenty of brands now that use adhesive material that is safe to use on your Switch console. Here are some of the top Nintendo Switch skins you can buy now.
This brand makes skins which are officially licensed by Nintendo, so you know their products will be quality controlled and work well on the Switch. If you’d like your console to rep Nintendo’s most famous franchise, this option gives you 37 different skins to choose from. This includes skins of Mario’s outfit, Mario Kart, Yoshi, Bowser, and many more.
You can also remove these Nintendo Switch skins with little to no residue, allowing you to change them out as much as you want. There are even Christmas-themed skin options if you’d like your Switch to match your decor during the holidays.
This skin set also comes with a screen protector for your Switch, which you can just as easily stick on.
This same company also makes a great Switch skin for Zelda fans. It has a very simple design for the screen and joy cons, with some of the beautiful official artwork for the Switch dock.

Being another one of Nintendo’s most well-known franchises, it should be no surprise that there are tons of Pokemon-themed Nintendo Switch skins.
