The colors are metallic and electric while the feel is pure silk. The Shine's keeping it minimalistic with a fit that perfectly mirrors the lines of the phone. It's criminal to add bulk to the already perfect lines of the iPhone 5. That's why you need a shell case that can enhance the phone without detracting from its beauty. This two-piece case protects from the inside with a fine microfiber coating and from the outside against knocks, drops and bumps.
