With their religious practices, one cannot deny the fact that Muslim women who yearn to give their fingernails a touch of class with nail polish can only do so in the dream. But why, you ask? Using a nail polish is oppose to their prayer practices. As explained by PopSugar Beauty, “the coats of polish are believed to create a barrier over the skin, which prevents water from touching every part of the body during ablutions.” But now Muslims can rejoice as beauty brand Orly has collaborated with Muslim Girl “to release a #HalalPaint collection that consists of six halal-certified polishes which are meant for oxygen to permeate the polish.
The 6-piece collection, ranging from Haram-Bae, The Perfect Amani-Cure, What the Fatima?, to Ig-Noor the Haters and more, is a way for Muslim beauty junkies to bridge the diversity gap and break new ground in the industry.
“This line is important because there are so many girls and young women who aren’t represented in mainstream beauty,” Azmia Magane, Muslim Girl chief of staff, said in a press released to PopSugar Beauty. “They either don’t fit that definition or see things about them that are designed without them, instead of for them and by them. This is our way of bridging the gap.”
Set for preorder on halalpaint.com for $49, the polishes are also “made with 100 percent halal ingredients, making them permitted under Islamic law, they are made with great ingredients — like argan oil, pro-vitamin B5, and vitamin C — to promote healthy nails.”
