Praying in Peelable polish

Some nail polish brands have a concept of ‘peelable’ nail polish. This is basically polish that you can peel off before making ablution (wudhu). The Wudhu is the cleaning ritual which involves washing hands, feet and face before prayer. I order to make the wudu you would have to fully remove the peelable polish, then make the wudu and then finally pray. However this can be very longwinded and tiresome as you would constantly have to be painting your nails to keep up. Having said this many women feel more comfortable with using this method of applying nail polish and making wudu. This can also be a good option for some.

With Halal nail polish you do not need to peel the nail polish off, you can leave this on. You can perform your wudu with the Halal nail polish on. Its super easy to leave the halal nail polish on all day and perform the wudu as many times as you like. This is so convenient and easy to have nice nails and also pray!

How the wudu is not affected by Halal nail polish and how you can pray in halal nail polish

With Breathable Halal Nail Polish, the wudhu process is not affected or compromised at all. This is because the water penetrates the nail bed. Answering that key question that you can indeed pray with Halal Nail polish on.

However when using the Halal nail polish be sure to only apply 2 layers of halal nail polish. This is because in many cases 3 plus layers will mean the polish is no longer permeable, the polish consistency on the nail will be too thick in order for the water to penetrate the nail bed. So definitely be careful when applying. Usually 2 layer is more than enough when using the Niyacosmetics Halal nail polish. More than 2 layers can be very thick in texture.

In this busy world its so incredible to have facilities and have amazing quality products to enable us to be efficient and practical.
