Why Halal Nail Polish? 

Living in our current world comes with many expectations. But, we must stay true to our faith and represent our religion in the best way possible. 

With this being said, there is also no shame in trying new things that help us feel more confident and beautiful. 

Nail polish has been one of the most controversial beauty products in Islam. And with the rise of cute nail designs and Halal nail polish trends, it is no wonder every woman wants to be part of it.

Well, the good news is, now Muslim girls can. Believe it or not, more brands have begun producing Halal beauty products. These products have ranged from lipsticks, eye shadow palettes, and nail polishes. 

Halal makeup is seriously underrated. It is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free! - Not to mention also free of drying alcohol. Halal nail polish makes for a breathable and water-permeable solution. 

It ensures your nails will never be dry, flaking, or yellow. You also do not have to be Muslim to take advantage of the benefits, either!

Why Won't Normal Nail Polish Work?

The problem first arose when nail polish was deemed unsanitary for Muslim women. It acted as a barrier between water and the nail plate during ablution (Wudu). - And so, Muslim scholars and other knowledgable Imams began to vote against nail polish entirely.

While this information was followed by a majority of Muslims, it remained controversial. But, now brands are amping up their game and bringing a new set style to the industry. 


What Is Wudu?

Wudu is a purifying ritual. Water must touch all portions of the aforementioned bodily parts to be accomplished correctly (Halal). Many Muslim women avoid wearing nail polish because it prevents water from coming into contact with their nails.

If you're a Muslim, you're probably aware that Muslim women have traditionally been prohibited from wearing nail paint because of wudu, the ritual washing of the hands, lower arms, face, head, and feet, performed before saying, Salah. - That is until now. 

Halal nail polishes are a huge trend. These are water permeable, allowing water to cleanse the skin right through it. Muslims have begun using it globally.
