25 Royal Blue Nails To Electrify Your Look

If you’re looking for a bold and tasteful nail color, why not try electric blue? Known by a few different names, royal blue, cobalt blue and electric blue are often used interchangeably to describe this beautiful, vibrant shade that often gets overlooked.

However, we’re here to show you that royal blue nails, much like their muted cousins, navy blue nails, deserve a chance to graze your fingertips. Whether you’re after a minimalist royal blue nail set with abstract swirls, or extravagant nail designs complete with rhinestones and decals, these 25 manicure ideas prove that this shade is much more versatile than you may have initially thought!
