The Makers Dozen, June 2019: Alter Ego - Island Hopping

Evening friends!  If you haven't heard, there's a new makers group on the scene, The Makers Dozen.  It's got 13 makers that are assigned to a specific theme.  Right now the theme is vacation Destinations, so each month the makers will cycle through a rainbow of colors inspired by the theme.  The great thing is you can purchase these polishes for the entire month or until the limited 40 bottles sell out.  I have Alter Ego's first polish for the Makers Dozen, Cynthia was assigned the color white.  She came up with a beautiful polish called Island Hopping.  You can pick it up for $10.  And you can still use my code My Nail Polish Obsession to save 20%!

This is Island Hopping.  It was inspired by Cynthia's first cruise with her husband.  The shimmery and sparkly white base was inspired by the luxurious interiors of the cruise liner and the blue shimmers mimic the ocean.  Such a lovely polish!  It is a bit on the sheer side, but I like how it's like a shimmery a wash of color on my nails.  You could probably layer this over a base color for a fun change! I used 3 coats and topcoat.

  1. I don't think I would use this alone, but I can definitely see this working as a topper.

  2. You captured the shimmer in this so well. Yay for the blue.

  3. This is just fabulous and perfectly delicate at the same time ♡

  4. Such a delicate and pretty polish! I wonder what this would look layered over a purple or a blue!
