Happy (almost) Sunday! We’re moving right along with posts tonight, and up next I have the Makers Dozen August 2019 Tropical Fish post to share!
Since this is all still new, we’ll go over what the Makers Dozen is about and how it works:
Makers Dozen has 12 set makers each month. Those makers are:
Jior Couture, Sassy Pants Polish, Zombie Claw Polish, PI Colors, Copacetic Cosmetics, Baby Girl Lacquer, LynB Designs, Leesha’s Lacquers, NeVerMind Polish, Alter Ego Nail Enamel, Ms. Sparkle, and Inspurrrations.
The 13th maker each month will be a guest maker. The August guest maker is Color Spectrum Polish!
Each month will have a new theme, August is Tropical Fish. Each maker is given a color to work with, and each month the color for each maker rotates. So if a maker does purple for July, they won’t do purple as their main color scheme again for 13 months as it rotates through. While each maker is given a color, they have creative freedom on how to use and incorporate that color. It can be within any shade range of that particular color or a prominent element within the polish.
If you noticed I called this a collaboration and not a shop. There is no set “shop” for this. Each polish is available in each individual maker’s store. Only 40 bottles of each polish will be made and they will be available in each store for the ENTIRE month (unless their 40 bottles sell out.)
As of right now Delanie of Swatch The Box and I are the “official” swatchers for this box so you have a set blog and a set live view for posts, but each maker had the ability to send to their own swatchers as well. To see more swatches, you can join the Makers Dozen Facebook Group.
Now we’ll get into my photos for the very first Makers Dozen Collaboration. Links to each shop will be below each individual description, as well as links to their fan groups and social media.

There is also a GIVEAWAY! You can enter in the widget below. There will be 13 winners and the winners may receive anything from a specific shop code for a percentage off, a store gift card, free shipping and more! The prizes will ONLY be good for the month of July.
Winners will be emailed with the email they use to sign up and the winners will be announced in the group on July 1st.
Hope you enjoyed this, and happy shopping! I’ll see you again in late August for the September offerings!
