Breathable polish has a unique formula which contains a high concentration of Cyclopentasiloxane. This creates a porous film which allows water and air to penetrate the nail plate. This ultimately makes the nail polish 100% Halal, breathable and Wudhu friendly.
Breathable polish is a great alternative to regular polish because it allows water and air vapours to pass into the nail. Overtime this definitely helps to maintain the quality and strength of the nails.
Breathable polish is also great for Muslim women. This is because they can continue to wear the polish and perform their prayers. Before each prayer there is a cleaning ritual, which involves washing the hands, feet and face. As the water penetrates the nails, this cleaning ritual known as the ‘Wudhu’ is not affected. This means that they can pray without removing the polish!
Breathable v regular nail polish?
As mentioned previously the breathable nail polish formula allows water and air to penetrate the nail. This therefore acts as a protective layer helping to protect and keep the nail in tact. As regular polish does not allow this penetration, if you constantly wear this over time your nails can become weak and brittle. They can then be very prone to chipping. That is definitely the worst feeling ever when you have a lovely manicure and your nails chip from the corner or the side. You will be left with no option but to cut the nail… Oh no. With breathable polish you can definitely avoid that situation!
The best manicure?
Is there one? Is there an ever-lasting one? Definitely not! A good manicure if well maintained can last for over a week! That means ensuring that you don’t apply too much pressure on your nails. For example avoiding pesky tasks such as peeling stickers or even opening a can of drink! Combined with a good diet, fruits, vegetables and lots of water. You can definitely get salon ready nails at home!
So to answer the question, breathable polish is definitely better long term for your nails! Go on give it a try!
