Orly x Muslim Girl #HalalPaint Nail Polish collection (Summer 2017)

New Release: Orly — Muslim Girl #HalalPaint (Summer 2017)

Collection: Orly 2017 Summer, Muslim Girl #HalalPaint

Orly and lifestyle blog MuslimGirl.com have collaborated to release a fully halal nail polish product for Muslims. (The polishes are, of course, still wearable by anyone!)

Orly x Muslim Girl #halalpaint nail polish collection (Summer 2017)

From halalpaint.com:

The first collaboration of its kind where an American beauty brand is catering to Muslim women, the #HalalPaint collection features six uniquely water-permeable nail polishes that are made out of 100% halal ingredients.

Some Muslim women avoid wearing traditional nail polish because it creates a barrier on their nails against ablution water for prayer. With ORLY’s breathable technology, both oxygen and hydration are able to pass through the layer of paint. The collaboration with MuslimGirl.com aims to present a viable beauty solution for Muslim women, as well as a new way to promote nail health.”

There are other lines of nail polish that cater to this demographic (Inglot and Maya Cosmetics immediately spring to mind), and Orly themselves actually released their Breathable Treatment + Color line last summer.

The new collection falls under the same Breathable product line and consists of six new shades with sassy names developed by the Muslim Girl team.

From halalpaint.com:

The nail polishes feature tailored names created by Muslim Girl like “Haram-Bae” and “Wallah Bro Wipe Out”, as well as common Muslim girl names like “What the Fatima?”, “Ig-Noor the Haters”, and “The Perfect Amani-cure”, named after the MuslimGirl.com founder Amani Al-Khatahtbeh.

“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 this collection,” Al-Khatahtbeh says.”

“This line is important because there are so many girls and young women who aren’t represented by mainstream industries. They see things about them that are designed without them instead of for them and by them,” explains MuslimGirl.com chief of staff Azmia Magane. “This is our way of bridging that gap.”

The six shades are:

  • Haram-Bae
  • #MuslimGirlFire
  • The Perfect Amani-cure
  • What the Fatima
  • Ig-Noor the Haters
  • Wallah Bro Wipe Out

The collection ships on July 1, 2017, and you can preorder the set at the official site, halalpaint.com.

Happy shopping!

New Release: SpaRitual — Inhale (Spring 2017)

Collection: SpaRitual 2017 Spring, Inhale

SpaRitual’s Spring 2017 collection, Inhale, comes in their new, 10-free, breathable nail polish.

A 10 Free and All-In-One polish to nourish, lengthen, strengthen and brighten your nails. No basecoat or topcoat needed, just 2 coats of color.

For some reason, the website does not appear to talk about the breathable aspect of the new formula, but promo material I’ve found online does state the following (from NailsMag):

The new Nourishing Vegan Color Inhale Collection from SpaRitual is lightweight and breathable, allowing oxygen and hydration to penetrate the polish through advanced oxygen technology, which mimics a contact lens.

The new collection consists of 5 soft shades—everyone does soft shades for spring, don’t they?

  • Harmony
  • Inner Peace
  • Renewal
  • Slow Beauty
  • Tranquility
