Unable to change file and folder icon theme to Human

I am using archlinux with gnome 3.
I am trying hard to change my icon theme to human but it just doesnt change. ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and ~/.gtkrc.mine
I tried lxappearance too. After I click on apply and close it gnome kinda restarts and when i open nautilus it shows no change. I had tango icon theme so i deleted that dir from /usr/share/icons. Now it has switched to the default gnome icon theme. How do i change it to Human icon theme?
