Over the decades what used to be bare nail color, simply used to add a pop of color on our fingers has since advanced into a tool for expressing moods, emotions and personalities. Powder, gel, acrylic, antioxidant-infused, harsh-chemical-free, and even vegan, are a few of the long chain of nail polish variety.
But strictly abiding Muslim women have been left out of the nail color frenzy for way to long, because of the non halal factor of nail polish, which prevents the penetration of water on the nails during ablution. In a time when the fashion and beauty world have finally decided to pay long overdue attention to Muslim women, the halal nail polish couldn’t have come at a better time.
Below are a couple of Halal Nail Polish we think every Muslim woman crazy about nail polish should know.
