What's Up Nails - Desert Monsoon Nail Polish Collection 2021 & Live Swatch


I'm excited to share with you the first nail polish collection by What's Up Nails!

This collection is available now on their website and for all those beauties who love to match their nails to their makeup, this nail polish line was created as a compliment to their Desert Monsoon eyeshadow palette so make sure to check that out as well. 😊 (Fun fact: I don't know how to make up 😁)

So before we get into the pictures, here are some thoughts I had on this collection:

1. All of the formulas were beautiful - easy application and the cremes were amazing (1 coaters for me 😍)
2. They have a shorter wide brush that I LOVE - it was so easy to control so application was a breeze
3. Everything dried smooth which I really love
4. Removal was easy - I use a non-acetone nail polish remover (I recently purchased a pump bottle* to use with my polish remover so I don't have to finagle with opening and closing the bottles and it just makes the process a lot less painful 😁)
5. I love that there are different finishes and colours - a little something for everyone!

Ok, let's get to the pictures!

First up is Downpour - described on the What's Up website as a "blue nail polish [with] blue chrome shimmer and an iridescent blue to purple duochrome shimmer". The purple was a little hard to capture but you can see it a bit on some of edges of my nails and the bottle. Here I have it shown in 2 coats and no top coat.

Succulent is "a purple crelly with pink to purple iridescent duochrome flakies and holographic flakies". I just loved the soft dusting of the holo in this polish. It was so sweet and adds just a gorgeous shimmer for that little something extra. 💜 I have it shown here in 2 coats and no top coat.

Joshua Tree is a light brown creme. This one really surprised me - I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about it but once I had it on my nails, I really loved it and thought it was a perfectly classy shade to wear. Shown here in 1 coat and no top coat (yes, 1, the coverage is ah-mazing!) 💗

Sun is a "gold chrome shimmer nail polish with iridescent gold to green duochrome shimmer." You can't really tell but my pinky and middle finger has 1 coat and my index and ring finger has 2 coats and no top coat. I wanted to show the coverage even in just 1 coat. I really fell in love with this polish - it was shimmery and golden and just a super fun and gorgeous polish. It'll be a go-to for sure for me when I want to feel like a golden goddess (um yes please, always want to feel like that 👑) Oh and that green duochrome completely eluded me so sorry I could not capture it for you to see 😓

Tempest is a gorgeous mauve creme. Another 1 coat beauty. It's sort of pink-ish, I love pink, and pink-ish 😂😍 Show here with no top coat.

And finally, Desert Rose is my absolute favourite from this collection. It is "a beautiful light pink crelly nail polish with gold shimmer." The coverage on this was so unexpected for me in a very good way. 😍 Shown here in 2 coats and no top coat.

And here is the live swatch video I made for this collection that's up on my YouTube

In summary - this collection is gorgeous. What's Up Nails really outdid themselves - the cremes were creamy, the shimmers were on point, the packaging was super cute, and the brushes were awesome. Let me know which one is your favourite in the comments below. 😊
