Translucent polishes are a matter of preference, I think. Personally, I don’t like it when you can see the edge through polish – I like my nails completely covered. If you’re like me and don’t really buy into these see through colour washes, try painting them over white polish – they really pop! The Mavala Jelly Effects collection has six syrupy shades and they’re gorgeous summery splashes of colour.
Because I’ve painted them onto a white nail wheel, they look more popping than they actually would do on the natural colour of the nail so do bear that in mind. Shades from left to right are Sugar Berry, Candy Apple, Jelly Grape, Happy Cherry, Smily Orange and Jammy Plum. Mavala sizes (5ml) are perfect for trying a trend – at £4.75 each they don’t break the bank. You can find them at John Lewis HERE.
