Etude House Play Nails Masterpost (WARNING: Photo Heavy!)


Hello again everyone! Today I'll be talking about the Korean brand Etude House's nail polishes; which are called Play Nails.

*DISCLAIMER*: Please do not use my photos without giving credit or without my permission.
All my babies lined up and neat... I didn't have the heart to throw them back in my drawers :(

All the swatch will be applied live on this video below:


One of the problem that I found is that Etude House uses a different name for different types of nail polishes compared to the regular brands. To help you, I have a list of the 'dictionary':
  • P 페랑트 = Paint
Paint means that the color is opaque in just one coat. But in my experience, even the nail polishes labeled as P can definitely use a second coat to even out the nail polishes.
  • J 젤리 = Jelly
Jelly means that the polish needs 2-3 coats to reach opacity, and yes, their formula is actually creamy, not jelly.
  • Y 요거트 = Yoghurt
Yoghurt nails means crelly glitter, like China Glaze It's A Trap-eze.
  • G 글리터 = Glitter
Pretty self explanatory, right?
  • S 쉬머링 = Shimmer
This is where it gets confusing, Etude House provides 2 types of nail polish with the 'S' code. One is a shimmer, and another one is Syrup.
  • S 시럽  = Syrup
Syrup right here is what us normal people call 'Jelly', which means that it's sheer and squishy!
  • PG 펄글리터  = Pearl Glitter
Pearl Glitter in this context means opaque creamy nail polish that has glitters/shimmers throughout.
  • NG 네은글리터 = Neon Glitter
Neon Glitter. Pretty self explanatory.
  • H 흘로그렘 = Hologram
Another self-explanatory code.
  • L 레더 = Leather
Leather = texture. 
  • PS 펄시럽 = Pearl Syrup
Jelly polish with shimmers.
  • N 네은  =  Neon
Obviously, neon means neon.
