This Jelly Effect Collection* is the latest release from the Swiss nail brand Mavala, it has 6 gorgeous bright shades that give your nails a gorgeous wash of colour. I have 5 of the 6 shades.
One of the things I really like about Mavala polishes is that they come in the sweetest little 5ml bottles, the brush is quite long and fairly thick and I found the polishes easy to apply. If you like your nail polish to be bold then these won’t be for you. The Jelly Effect collection give your nails a wash of colour & even after 2 coats they are still quite sheer – as the name suggests, just like Jelly pretty shades but sheer in colour.
I think its great trend for pretty subtle Summer nails, I know YSL & OPI have previously released their own version of sheer nail colours & this year Mavala have joined the trend. I like the colours in this collection, they’re all quite fresh and fruity. I’m a sucker for pinks and purples, I think they are colours that are easy to wear and they look pretty on both fingers and toes. In the collection they have,
Jelly Grape – A vibrant purple grape
Candy Apple – A sheer red with pink undertones
Smily Orange – A sheer tangerine
Happy Cherry – A vibrant pink with purple undertones
Sugar Berry – A sheer red with orange undertones (not really a berry shade)
Jammy Plum – Is the shade I don’t have but it looks like the darkest shade in the range & is a deep plum
I think my favourite shades are Candy Apple & Smily Orange, they look so cute on the nails and just add a bit of Summer to my look. These polishes dry to the touch within minutes and last 5 – 7 days on my nails (using the Essence Better Than Gel Topcoat). They do have a wet look finish but I like my polish to have that really glossy look so I always use a glossy topcoat.
Is this translucent nail trend one you’re on board with?
Mavala Nail Polish are free from parabens, formaldehydes, camphor, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metal. So all non toxic.
