BTW, I know that women during the time of the prophet (peace be upon him) used Henna to color their nails and toes, along with their fingers, and Aisha may God be pleased with her was asked why she doesn't do, she said that simply because Pophet Muhamaad (PBUP) didn't like its smell [not because it is not permissible or anything], so in Egypt really women nowadays use henna (some have added dyes) to color their nails, but the it simply dyes the finger nails without leaving any sort of impereable layer over it. You can check this out if you like, but let me warn you, it doesn't look anything like nail polish, and it just gives a pale reddish hue to the fingernails.

My MIL (Egyptian) does this. She'll also put vaseline on to shine them up but it seems waaaaaaaaayyy too complicated for me. She has to sit for an hour or so with it on and it is extremely messy. To darken the color she does it almost everyday or every other day for a while. I could never do it and not have the kids destroy it and the house but nevertheless an option for those who like some color! =)

I'd like to try that on my toes one day--But I'm afraid my husband won't like it.
