My friend has given me a great idea of making my own cell case for my Android phone, by getting a plain case, adding stickers, Rhine stones, or whatever I want on it, and then adding a top coat of some sort. She said to use clear nail polish, but I feel like that would yellow over time and peel; not to mention that it probably won't hold against scratching.

If possible, I want to customize the hard outer shell of an Otter Box. Its a very protective case, but my boyfriend and I have the same phone and he has an Otter Box and it only comes in black; I don't want the phones identical. The problem with the Otter Box too is it has ridges in it, but maybe that can be filled. The shell is made of a "high-quality polycarbonate" material.

http://www.otterbox.com/HTC-Rezound-Commuter-Series-Case/HTC4-98100,default,pd.html?dwvar_HTC4-98100_color=20&start=1&cgid=htc-rezound-cases&srule=price-low-to-high    < See how it has the ridges?

Would a basic plastic shell be best for customization or would it be possible with the OtterBox shell?

What would be the best top coat/sealant that won't cost too much and will be long lasting and scratch resistant?
