Orly and MuslimGirl make nail polish for all

The beauty industry just got a little more inclusive, thanks to Orly’s new collaboration.

According to PopSugar, the nail polish company teamed up with MuslimGirl.com to launch #HalalPaint, a line of breathable nail polish that allows Muslim men and women to wear nail polish.

Because traditional nail polish is “believed to create a barrier over the skin, which prevents water from touching every part of the body during ablutions,” PopSugar says that not only does this new product let “oxygen and moisture pass through the polish,” it is also made of “100 percent halal ingredients.”

The six-color line features polish names like “Haram-Bae, The Perfect Amani-Cure, What the Fatima?, Ig-Noor the Haters,” among others, says PopSugar, which were chosen by MuslimGirl.com founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh and her staff.

Speaking on the impact of the new line, Al-Khatahtbeh told PopSugar that the line is a way of making the beauty industry much more inclusive.

“Many of us are the girls who could never find our names on a keychain, so we wanted to make sure we provided that experience through the collection,” Al-Khatahtbeh said. “This collection is an incredible way to acknowledge the diverse religions that also exist in the beauty world. Although the polishes were made for Muslim women, anyone can wear them!”

The new line will be available starting July 1, but PopSugar says the six-piece collection is currently available for pre-order on halalpaint.com for $49.
