Today I have a quick swatch for you, Dior Electric Blue. Electric Blue is a bright, almost-neon blue polish with a crème finish. You know that find silver shimmer you can sometimes see in Dior polishes? Well it definitely shows up in Electric Blue!!! I was driving a few times with this mani and was distracted by its small blingy awesomeness. This is 2 coats of Electric Blue, and it went on like a dream!
Electric Blue is ready for its closeup.
Dior Electric Blue is amazing! I had originally passed on this one when I picked up the other polishes from the Anselm Reyle for Dior collection, and now I’m glad I went back and bought this!!! It’s a totally bold color for summer, and I can’t wait to rock it.
I checked my collection of bold blue polishes and only had one polish that was close (oh, the perils of slimming down one’s collection) – Rescue Beauty Lounge IKB:2012. IKB:2012 was recently released as a part of the RBL Fan Collection, 4 polishes inspired by RBL fans. I was going to swatch it for you here, but since IKB:2012 is sold out, I won't because I don’t want you to fall in love and go looking for it, as it’s selling for ridiculous prices on eBay!! Instead, I swatched IKB:2012 next to Electric Blue so you could see how similar the two polishes are.

As you can see in the photo above, IKB:2012 and Electric Blue are very similar in color. IKB:2012 is a slight shade darker than Electric Blue. While their colors are discernible to the naked eye, I don’t think there’s any reason to own both, unless you a blue fanatic. Of the two, I would recommend going with Electric Blue – the formula on IKB:2012 was ghastly to work with, while Electric Blue applied like butter. I may not be Paula Deen, but even I know butter wins every time!
Dior Electric Blue was released as a part of the Anselm Reyle for Dior collection this past spring. It retails for $23 for a 0.33 fl oz bottle; you can pick one up at Dior boutiques and at Dior counters at Saks Fifth Avenue only (unfortunately, it was not made available to all Dior counters).
