Rainbow Honey Skyward Bot

**PR sample provided by company representative**

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. I also reviewed Femme Bot by itself here.  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 Skyward Bot, a blue metallic polish, is definitely both reflective like a foil and also sparkly, especially in sunlight, and the finish is definitely smooth.

The formula on Femme Bot, the pink metallic and the first of the "Robots" that I tried, had been excellent, and that polish had been a one-coater.  I was expecting Skyward Bot to have the same formula and had hoped it would also be a one-coater, but I had problems with application.  This polish seemed maybe thicker than Femme Bot.  I had to use two coats to cover up streaks and balding on the first coat.  I could see a little bit of brush strokes showing, too.  Still, the color is gorgeous, and blue is probably my favorite color of nail polish, so I loved it.  It wore well for a week, didn't stain at all, and removal was easy.

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

So reflective!

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. Shame this wasn't a one coater, I have a couple of W7s which streak and bald on first coat then come up perfect on second coat.

    1. Gorgeous color. It was worth the hard work afterwards, and it was even worth the streaks and line-marks here and there, but when I was going through the process itself, it was not as relaxing as giving oneself a manicure should be!
