Dior Electric Tropics Catwalk Duos: Aloha 638 & Paradise 558

April 25, 2011

This is a quick post to show you the two new nail shades from Dior in the Electric Tropic Duos in Aloha and Paradise, each $26 including a top coat. These colors are vibrant. I’m sure you could spot them from a mile away. They are that bright.

Aloha 638 was featured earlier (see one post down). My Dior Paradise 558 photo attempts = total fail. The neon simply does not do well with my camera. In this post are the comparison pictures of the two shades in the bottles and a few shots of Paradise. To quote Café Makeup, “Paradise is within an entirely different species of nail polish” – INDEED! I do have a couple Paradise swatches below. Note that I am not being modest when I say the photos below are extremely poor in quality and accuracy. Paradise is a jelly neon pink that dries to a matte finish. The texture is so interesting – just like jelly shoes. I highly recommend these sources for better swatches:

A few more pictures:

In real life Paradise is a hot sheer cool pink, it doesn’t glow like this in person, but this is the best I could do – see how it kinda blinds my camera:

One last shot:

Aloha (shown one post below) photographed much better! It’s my favorite of the two.

  • Gorgeous photos!

  • Paradise and Aloha look so pretty side by side! I'm intrigued by your description of the "matte jelly" finish; and it's surprising how different everyone's swatches are. I think I may go on the hunt next time I'm out =)

  • These look amazing and I can imagine they will look stunning in the sunshine. I can appreciate your problems trying to photograph Paradise, my camera gets similarly upset with neons! Very frustrating! I'm tempted to take a look at these (probably whilst I go and take a look at the quints, I made my terrible confession on Twitter the other day that I've never owned a quint). I bought Gris Montaigne after seeing your swatches and I get on really well with that so you have certainly put Dior on my nail varnish radar!

    Both look great! No issues with the photography at all. Nice summer-y colors! 🙂
