ORLY Just Released The First Ever Halal-Certified Nail Polish Collection

ORLYΒ and Muslim Girl have teamed up to launch a limited edition collection of Halal-certified nail polishes, and this is groundbreaking.

Just in time for the upcoming Eid celebrations, the very first Halal-certified nail polish line has been released, and this is truly groundbreaking.

Nail polish brand ORLY and Muslim GirlΒ teamed up to launch a limited edition six-piece collection of polishes called #HalalPaint that are made from 100 percent halal ingredeints, including argan oil, Vitamin C, and provitamin B5.

Arguably what's the coolest about this new line of polishes, however, is that the formual is permeable to water, which is necessary for many practicing Muslims.

Many associate the term "Halal" with food and the preparation of food, but Halal is a way of life for many Muslims that literally means "permissible." Some even avoid wearing nail polish at all because of the barrier it creates when it comes to cleansing certain parts of the body, including the nails, in preparation for prayers, in what's known as wudu or ablution. If the water cannot get through to the nail bed because of a non-porous layer (AKA nail polish), then the wudu is not halal, or permissible, which is where this new line swoops in.

The breathable technology that is used in these new polishes makes it possible for both oxygen and water to pass through the nail polish, meaning that it can be worn during these celebrations, creating a space for the Muslim community in an otherwise lacking beauty industry.

And not only is this technology incredibly cool already, but the names of the polishes have us beside ourselves in admiration. The list includes, What the Fatima?, Haram-bae, Ig-Noor the Haters, and The Perfect Amani-cure, named after the MuslimGirl.com founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh.

The limiited-edition #HalalPaint is available for $49 from halalpaint.com. We're totally stoked about this product that is a breakthrough in providing representation to Muslims in a society where this kind of innovative and encompassing mindset tends to be more absent than not.

"Many of us are the girls who could never find our names on a keychain," Al-Khatahtbeh told Allure. "so we wanted to make sure we provided that experience through this collection."
