Today I have the newest collection from Rainbow Honey to show you. The Robot Collection consists of six lacquers, five of them are "formulated with specially coated aluminum flakes. The metallic lacquers of the Robot Collection are simultaneously sparkly, reflective, and smooth!" The collection also includes a black and white glitter topper. I was pretty excited so see these when they arrived for review.
These shiny metallic foils were just asking to be played with. So I tried out some nail art!
Two thin coats of Bitty Love Bot- sparkling metallic aqua and an accent nail of Lucky Bot- sparkling metallic agave. It was shiny any fun but I tried adding a gradient with a makeup sponge. The gradient worked but I ended up with a little bit of a textured look.
When I looked at Femme Bot- sparkling metallic peony, Dusty Bot- sparkling metallic lavender, and Skyward Bot- sparkling metallic cerulean, I knew these polishes needed to be color blocked. For my first attempt, I decided to go freehand. I love the way it came out!
The last polish in this collection, Yoshimi- a truly mod combination of back and white glitters. Of course Yoshimi looks great over the Robot Collection but I wanted to show you what it looks like over a creme so you can see all of the glitters. Here is one coat over Alessandro- Sweet Blackberry.

Pros- These polishes arrived in Rainbow Honey's new tall, thin mini bottles. I usually HATE minis and these were so much easier to work with! The brush is practically full sized and the polish applied easily. All of the metallic polishes went on in two thin coats.
Cons- You can see in my color block mani that if I didn't go over the same area exactly, I got a bit of a texture layer thing going on. This polish is completely made up of sparkly metallic particles so there's no wonder they can get a little bunched up if you're not careful!
Overall- This is the first metallic collection I've seen come from an indie and I love it! I'm not sure if Yoshimi is a good fit for the collection but I don't care, I like it! I wish more indies would switch to usable mini bottles too :)
