Etude House Play Nail Polish 7 is a light dusty coral nail polish.  It looks very sweet and girly in the bottle but on the nail there is a bit of brightness that comes through.  I normally stay away from corals because I feel they make my skin look darker, fortunately this one has the right amount of pink to flatter almost all skin tones.   I love this shade of coral, its neutral and yet fun.

Etude House Play Nail Polish 56 is a deep red crelly that applies more like a cream.  I love reds but find them too intimidating to wear straight out.  That’s why the crelly/jelly formula works best.  The colour is intense but the impact is wonderfully light and delicious.   I do love this but I may wear it more on my toes than on my nails.

Etude House Play Nail Polish 19 is a blue based pink that borders on rose.  This is not exceptionally special and you can find a dupe pretty easily for the colour.  It actually looks a lot better in the bottle than worn.  Another colour that I may wear a lot more on my toes than on my fingers.

Texture and Formula – The texture of most of these polishes was the same and so I didn’t elaborate on each separately.  These are all thin, but cover the nail beautifully.  They go on easily and are pretty self leveling.  One word of caution though, I feel the red is a little too thin and I found it pooling near the cuticle since I took a little more than necessary.

The smell of Etude House Play Nail Polish is a bit off putting but it goes away very quickly.  I do not think Etude House Polishes are 3 free so take care if that’s important to you.

Longevity

These all last between 2 to 3 days on me.  A note here to say that most polishes last on me only for 2 to 3 days and some even chip within the 12 hour mark.  I’m just very rough on my hands, and this is not an indication of the quality of the polish.

Overall thoughts

Nice basic colours, really good if you don’t have stuff in this spectrum.  I personally love the red and the coral.  The pink is nice to have but not exceptional.
