I like color and texture on my nails, but I kinda felt the need to get nude nail polish colors for my budding collection too. After all, I feel like sometime I’m gonna need a break from the bright or dark hues, and crackle and sparkle that I like to wear. The Nymph Aura Glam Nails set, from Etude House’s recently-released collection, looked like pretty, not boring nudes to my eyes, so I brought one of the few remaining boxes with me to the counter.
The Etude House Nymph Aura Glam Nails set includes three mini bottles (.23 fl. oz.)—two of which are nude hues, Skin Beige 1, Pure Pink 1, and a top coat, Aura Pearl 3, to be used with either of the two aforementioned shades.
Skin Beige and Pure Pink have creme finishes, and I found them to be apply rather streaky and uneven. I used two thick coats of each to achieve solid, somewhat even color. It was a little frustrating, especially because I’m terrible at putting on nail polish on my fingers. I’m much more used to applying them on my toes.
Aura Pearl applied with no problems though, and I used two coats for each finger. I really like the shimmery, iridescent finish it provides, it’s very pretty.
Skin Beige I think is more easily wearable for me among the two cremes because the color is similar to my skin tone. It’s a warm beige color that looks rather subtle on my hands.
Pure Pink is a light, pastel peachy pink which at times looks a bit too cool and pale for my warm skin. Aura Pearl is more noticeable when worn over Pure Pink, and I think it goes beautifully with this color. I really like the lovely iridescence of Aura Pearl and the subtle shimmery kick it gives to these neutral colors.

Skin Beige with the Aura Pearl top coat. Crappy photo but this is the only one I have that closely shows how the color looks in actual. Also, I pressed onto my nails before they’d fully dried, hence the marks.
Etude House Nymph Aura Glam Nails – Likes:
- Affordable at PhP 328.
- The combination of the nude cremes with the shimmery top coat looks lovely.
- All three polishes don’t take long to dry.
- Looks clean and subtle on my hands. These are work-appropriate colors, even with the Aura Pearl top coat.
- The pretty, dainty packaging.
- Easily accessible at Etude house branches.
Etude House Nymph Aura Glam Nails – Dislikes:
- Skin Beige and Pure Pink are kinda streaky and apply unevenly. They also developed a thickish texture only about a week after I bought them.
If you like light, pastel, or nude nail polish colors and a bit of shimmer, these are worth a try, not to mention it doesn’t cost much for three mini bottles. Personally, I’ll probably use the Aura Pearl top coat more often than the two cremes combined, because I do love shimmer and glitter and I particularly like the subtlety in this one. I’m very excited to try it with my other creme and jelly nail lacquers.
