Breathable nail 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 nail 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 ideal for Muslim women.
This is because they can 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 is known as ‘Wudhu’. With the breathable nail polish the Wudhu is not affected. This means that they can pray without removing the polish!
Breathable nail polish vs 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 nail 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?
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 off stickers or even opening drinks can! Combined with a good diet, fruits, vegetables and lots of water, breathable nail polish you can definitely get beautiful 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!
