わ is often used in female speech to end a sentence. It has no meaning in particular.
かんが
えた
だけ
むしず
虫唾
はし

That makes me disgusted just to think of it.
Since it's a casual form, it typically follows a plain form verb, but on occasion can follow the ます form.
ええほんとに
すてき
素敵
よる
です
Yes, it's a lovely night.
Also unusually, わ can be combined with other particles, such as よ for emphasis.
れいぞうこ
冷蔵庫
サラダある
There's some salad in the fridge.
In the Kansai region, this form may also be encountered in male speech.
