I am not to sure if I understand this part right:

But apart from system icons , Nautilus icons fail to change I have restarted my computer, and tried to keep the extracted folder in /usr/share/icons/ by sudo nautilus but still it doesn't work.

Did you actually put the Simple-icon-theme-folder into /usr/share/icons/ ?!

If not move it there, using sudo mv [ root privileges | move/rename] command.

Put the icon-theme-folder (I name it simple-icon) on your Desktop (~/Desktop) and then use this command (replace USERNAME with yours):

sudo mv '/home/USERNAME/Desktop/simple-icon' '/usr/share/icons/' 

and apply the icon-theme again, using Gnome Tweak Tool`

If it doesn't work, please report back.
