I'd be overly excited if this is generally accepted as halaal. I used to love wearing nail polish. Only applying during that "special time" isn't for me because then it's like a badge alerting to the world that it is that time of the month :-( 

So, I've been going without since reverting.

hmmm.. breathable manicure that allows water to penetrate to the nail.. interesting.. and like the article said, the dilemma that might (should, in my opinion) face Muslim women is whether the should wear such beautification in public or not.. 

honestly, I don't know what to say about this.. i think it is nice for those who are used to nail polish to wear it at home without  having to remove it for every prayer time. but I do think it encourages women to beautify themselves even more before leaving the house , plus it might still give the impression to others that she is on her period lol since this is not really major news ( breathable wudu'-able nail polish) 

personally, I never liked nail polish,, I tried the henna on my toes since I always wear closed shoes when I leave the house, it was nice.. lol.. 

Peaceseeker84, how have you been.. I know it's been a while since I logged on.. too many things happening.. had a break today.. it's good to be back.. ((Hugs))

 

Love and salaam (peace)

Just one thing that drew my attention in the article is that it said it allow "water vapors" to penetrate it, so is this enough for the nails to be considered washed in wuduu ? I guess it needs further study,

Salam alikom. I am going to watch this and ask the imam about it. I loved pink nail polish on my toes and hated polish on my finger nails lol. It would be nice to be able to get pedicures again. I wear socks and closed shoes so it wouldn't be exposed.

Okay, ladies, I have a question. So when my MIL was here I asked her if she wanted to go get a mani/pedi with me. She said no because of God. I didn't understand then, but I get why now. However, aren't you supposed to try to look for your husbands? Can you get your nails done then? Sorry if I offend. I am really trying to learn.

No offense at all.. :) 

I never got Mani/pedi's in America because all the places are open.. and have men working in them.. However, in Jordan it is all women, so I had them done.. everything from the soaking to the cleaning of the cuticles..etc. EXCEPT the last stage of coating the nails with the polish.. 

so you can trim, clean, file..etc but NOT put the coat that prevents the water from reaching the nail.. :)

That's why I never put it on my fingers.
