Perri Konecky of Pop Sugar is reporting nail company Orly has launched a new line #HalalPaint that makes “breathable” nail polish so Muslim women can wear nail polish. The line which is created by Muslim women for Muslim women can be worn by anyone. Konecky reports:
“Many Muslim men and women are not able to wear regular nail polish because it conflicts with prayer practices. 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 Orly’s new polish collection offers a solution. In an effort to bridge the diversity gap in the beauty world, the polish brand has teamed up with Muslim Girl to release a new collection of six halal-certified polishes, all of which let oxygen and moisture pass through the polish.
The Breathable line called #HalalPaint features adorably sassy polish names like Haram-Bae, The Perfect Amani-Cure, What the Fatima?, Ig-Noor the Haters, and more, named by MuslimGirl.com founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh and the Muslim Girl team.
‘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 release. ‘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.'”
