Review: Etude House Play Color Nails

26. April 2014


It’s been a while since Etude House released their Play Nail Polishes. They introduced so many different colors and styles, that is was quite difficult to decide which ones to pick. I chose two nail polishes at that time, them I received two other ones in a giveaway, so I decided to make a collective post for all four nail polishes at once.

The shades I’ll show you today are No. 55, 118, 132 and 52 from left to right. Each of them represent a different type/style of nail polish.
On the label of the cap you’ll find the numbers and a letter code. The letter code represents the type of nail polish, meaning M for matte, P for paint, SG for Syrup and Glitter and PS for Paint and Syrup. (That’s at least what I could conclude. Feel free to comment if it is not correct :D).
The design of the tiny bottles is cute and they have a perfect shape to be stored and collected. They beautified the bottles with a lace art ribbon on the upper rim. I personally loved the old shape of the nail polish bottles from Etude House more :D They were more princess-y *_*…
All in all the quality is quite descent for the price. But you need two layers of polish to receive a nice coverage. Another downside is, that they need quite a time to dry, especially if you use two coats of polish. Other than these points, these nail polishes are really nice. Etude House offers us a huge variance of different colors and styles and probably you’ll find every thing you’ll need. Unfortunately, the matte nail polishes were limited, but I hope that they will return for autumn :D…
No. 55
No. 118
No. 131
No. 52 
Which one is your favourite? Did you try any of Etude House’s Play nail polishes?
You can get these nail polishes almost in every online store which is selling Etude House products, for example:
Twofacemall for US$ 5.13 ( free shipping option) – They are currently on sale, normally they cost 18.28 US$
W2Beauty from US$ 4.64 onwards (free shipping option. You’ll get a 5$ voucher upon registration with this link, which is usable for orders of minimum 30$)
Testerkorea from 2000 Won onwards (around 2 US$) (shipping depends on weight)
Also check out ebay!

    All the colors you have are so pretty! :) My favorite would be 132 and 52. And I totally agree that the Etude House nail polishes are worth the money. They’re my favorite nail polishes so far, along with the L’oreal Color Riche Vernis nail polishes. <3 Thank you for the swatches and review!

      I have to check out the nail polishes from L’oreal. I only tried one of their confetti-topcoats, which I liked pretty much. Thanks for commenting! ♥

    Oh myy..! I am in love with #55! I’m not a big fan of matte nail polishes so they wouldn’t be something for me but #55 looks really nice!

    • Fräulein Schnee 6. May 2014 at 17:21

      Thank you. I really like the color, too. I was first sceptical because it was so pink but I love the syrup finish. Thanks for commenting ♥

    Omg 55 and 52!!! I want them both! I love how the shades have a lot of depth and yet they are so glossy!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:33

      Yes, they look really pretty. I love the finish of both :) Thanks for reading ♥

  • Beth Graves 27. April 2014 at 17:32

    I love the colors but I have a hard enough time with the fast drying ones to not miss my nails up so not sure if these are right for me or not!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:34

      Haha, I’m always messing up my freshly polished nails, because I’m just not patient enough to wait until they are dry :D

  • Moi Sanom 27. April 2014 at 18:36

    If No 51 would be matte that would be so lovely!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:35

      My plan was to get No. 51 in matte, but I received the wrong color and then the matte ones were sold out :( Maybe someday :D

    55 – the jelly polish is so beautiful! And the 131 matte is gorgeous too!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:36

      These both are georgeous :D I wanted to have 51 in matte, too, but I received the wrong one. Nevermind, it’s beautiful nevertheless :D

    I love the matte polish! The packaging is so cute on all of the bottles. How does the formula hold up? Does it chip fast or last awhile?

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:40

      I think it is normal for the price. It chips off depending on how much you use your nails or take a shower or wash your hands :D The matte colors are really beautiful :) Thanks for reading ♥

    These are all so pretty! I think my vote goes to the maroon shade. (:
