Today I've got Skittle swatches of the L'Oreal jelly polishes for Summer 2013 from the Miss Candy collection plus some bonus sandwiches and such. On the display, L'Oreal touts these polishes as having "gellie technology" with "sheer finish" and "high gloss". There are eight colors, which I somewhat precariously stacked for the group bottle shot.
Left to right below (all three coats, no topcoat): Bananarama Love (yellow), Bubble Trouble (pink), Mango Mamma (orange), and Jolly Lolly (warm red):
Left to right below (as above, all three coats, no topcoat): Lilac Coolers (lilac), Crème de Mint (green), Miss Pixie (blue), and Berry Nice (purple).
Since these are meant to be sheer, of course there's visible nail line. Skintone underwear would take care of that, while white underwear would work similar to how it does with neons, making the colors pop. I chose to just embrace the squishiness and wear them over nothing at all.
Sheer polishes are often prone to is streakiness, but these don't have that issue. Here's Berry Nice, building from one coat on my index finger to four on my pinky:
I definitely wanted to try making jelly sandwiches with these (which I suppose should be called glitter sandwiches because the jelly is the bread part, not the filling, but now I'm off on a tangent and need to stop). I grabbed one of the Mardi Gras glitters which I thought would coordinate with all of the L'Oreals, this unnamed mix of large and small hexes in a rainbow of colors plus gold and silver.
I made unbalanced sandwiches with the jellies and the glitter, putting two or three coats of color, followed by one of the glitter, then just one more of the color so as not to cover the glitter too much. It was interesting to see how the different colors affected how the glitter looked.
Overall, this is a fun collection, and I think most everyone could find at least one color in here that would be flattering. I'm a bit skeptical about the yellow one, as at one coat it just looks like bad staining, but I can see wearing it over over colors or in jelly sandwiches for sure.
