[Q-ID0426] Is it allowed to wear ‘Halal’ nail polish?

QUESTION:

What do the scholars and muftis of the mighty Shari’ah say regarding the following matter, is it permissible to apply ‘halāl’ nail polish as it is mentioned on their website that the wudū water will reach the skin after applying it (nail polish)?

Questioner: Sa’eedah from UK

ANSWER:

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

Although it is permissible for a female to apply nail polish which is composed of halāl ingredients in order to adorn herself for her husband, it should be avoided, as once it is applied, wudū and ghusl will not be valid due to the nail polish preventing the water from reaching the body. If there is such a nail polish which does not stop the water from reaching the body, there is no harm in applying it. However, the website should not be relied upon alone, rather, it should be tested, and until you are certain that this nail polish does not prevent the wudū water from reaching the body, it should not be used.
