Muslims perform ablution (Wudu) before performing the prayer (Salah). It is a type of purification that involves washing the hands, mouths, nostrils, arms, heads and feet with water. When there is a lack of water, it is recommended to perform dry ablution, using sand or dust. Anyways, the point is the ablution isn’t correct without water reaching every bit of the parts that need to be washed. Some nail polish is waterproof and the water needs to reach the nails. Hence, waterproof items should be removed before performing ablution. Those of us who like wearing nail polish, we know it’s time-consuming to always have to remove your nail polish before performing Wudu. Due to this reason, we ignore nail polish. But with the brilliant minds, and people who love fashion led to the invention of breathable nail polish.
What is Breathable Nail Polish?
It is created similar to that of the contact lens. It allows oxygen and hydration to penetrates into the nail. Because the water can able to reach to the nail, it can be ok if this kind of nail-polish is worn during ablution. Breathable nail polish is a must-have beauty item for Muslims who like to paint their nails. What I like about these nail polish, is the fact it is halal but also because these nail polishes are made with healthy ingredients. These include vitamins, argan oil etc. WIth so many beauty companies offering breathable nail-polish, it is easier to choose your perfect shades from the vast collection.
The first breathable nail polish I tried was the Inglot O2M. It’s just like a regular nail polish. I like the glossy and shiny effect that it gives my nail. If frequently contact with water it’ll last approximately two days without starting to chip-off. For me, the price is definitely a factor; $16 for nail polish is little pricey. If my nails were looking oh so perfect over two weeks without any need for reapplication, I might have reconsider. But this isn’t the case.
This is the second breathable nail polish I tried and loved so far. It’s not costly, it almost the same price as regular drugstore nail polishes especially, if on sale. There are a variety of pretty colours, range from deep to light shades. Orly’s nail polishes lasting power is not bad at all. I applied it on the 21st June 2018 and until the 26th June 2018 that when I noticed my nail polish starting to look worn out. I already purchased two shades from this brand and plans to repurchase more.
Other nail polishes that are halal but hasn’t tried
786 cosmetics also sold halal nail polish. Things that caught my eyes in their branding are:
(1) Certified Halal
(2) No peeling – wonder what their science behind this?
(4) Free of harsh chemicals
On their website, there are limited shades but beautiful versatile colours. Some might contemplate purchasing due to the cost. However, if no peeling, it is a plus in my book. Noone likes a chipped nail.
This catchy halal nail polish brand is becoming a household brand for many lately. I saw a lot of other beauty editors are raving about their nail polishes. A con is if purchasing is made via their website you need to purchase over $75 for free delivery to Canada or to the US. But compared to 786 Cosmetics, they offered more shades.
Cool brand name, ‘Tuesday in Love’. They not only offered halal nail polishes but also halal cosmetics. They’re a cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. This definitely, a site for beauty conscious lover to check out. Another plus, on their website, you can find interesting fashion articles.
Note: I have a surprise for you, Tuesday in Love is offering 15% off your purchase by using this coupon code TUESDAY15 !!!! Dancing Emoji 🙂
I guess the reason why the smaller brands nail polish’s price is a little pricey compared to some is maybe that they operate on more higher expenses than the bigger brands. I am not sure if you felt the same but it’s nice to support new brands.
