Cracks in Nickel Colored Leather Trim?

Hi Ladies!

I purchased bias nova check handbag a while ago with nickel trim - the nickel color is cracking and revealing the leather underneath. Does anyone have any experience with covering this up somehow? Maybe a Sharpie marker or nail polish color?

Also, any remedies for blue ink on the PVC?

Thanks in advance!!

The nickel was peeling off my large tote after only 3 months of use. I got credit for it and purchased a watch instead. Take it back immediately and have them replace it or give you credit. According to the Manager, this is not supposed to happen so soon. I would not advise fixing it yourself. I don't know of any remedies for the blue ink on the PVC. I know they advise not to rub the PVC on your blue jeans. Maybe baby wipes?

I think this problem with the cracking on the leather trim only happens to the Nickel color, mine is black patent and so far so good *knock on wood*. Because I've seen several threads regarding the nickel only.
Anyways, I think you should do what peevenjo did, because it's ridiculous to happen for the amount we pay! Good luck!
