Today I have the first ever Makers Dozen collaboration to share with you. This is a monthly collab with 12 set makers and 1 guest maker, which makes 13 new shades per month. Before the individual photos, I’ll go over more about the shop to the best of my ability. So get ready for the Makers Dozen June 2019 Vacation Destinations themed collab.
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.
Each month will have a new theme, June is Vacation Destinations. 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 June, 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. This month the guest maker is Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish.
Links to each shop will be below each individual description, as well as links to their fan groups and social media.
