Rainbow Honey Femme Bot

In a previous post here, I wrote about being surprised to receive the entire Robot Collection to review, and I reviewed the groovy matte glitter top coat Yoshimi worn over Femme Bot. All the colors in the collection are really pretty.  They are spring-like, but just a little edgy, so not the routine overdone pastel cream-finish spring colors.  To me they seem like chrome polishes, and I never got around to buying any of the drugstore (Essie) chrome polishes, and these colors are prettier in my opinion, too, so I am very happy because I finally have chrome-like polishes.  The polishes are made with aluminum flakes, which, according to Rainbow Honey's website, makes "the metallic lacquers of the Robot Collection simultaneously sparkly, reflective and smooth."  The finish on Femme Bot, a pink metallic polish, is definitely both reflective like a foil and also sparkly, especially in sunlight, and the finish is definitely smooth.

The formula was excellent on this polish.  It went on extremely easily, and I do not have great skills at polishing my nails, so that's saying a lot.  I was stunned to find IT WAS A ONE-COATER!!!  I was able to finish my mani very quickly, and the polish dried quickly as well, and I had no cleanup other than evening out the area around my cuticles.  The best part was that even though I only used one coat of Femme Bot, the polish lasted an entire week with just a bit of tip wear.  Because I had to go to court so many times, I didn't have time for my usual morning routing which includes adding a coat of quick-dry top coat to my mani, so this one-coat mani lasted a week pretty much on its own.  I did add a coat of Seche Vite on top of the one coat of Femme Bot immediately after applying Femme Bot.  Femme Bot didn't seem brushstrokey to me.  I think it might stamp well, being so opaque and being metallic.

Here are some photos, all in sunlight, with the last photos in less direct sunlight:

Almost looks like suede in this photo, doesn't it?

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. I love the way some of the pictures look like you had a gradient mani, it shows how much varying lights change the colour.

    1. Yes, the polish was a little bit of a chameleon, more so than many other polishes where it can just be a lighting trick. All the colors were pretty, too!
