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: Illamasqua — Metamorph (Spring 2016)

Collection: Illamasqua 2016 Spring, Metamorph

Illamasqua‘s Spring 2016 collection is Metamorph:

Celebrating the evolution of nature and its systematic, seasonal rejuvenation, METAMORPH accentuates hyper-real skin and feral brows, embracing beauty in its most natural form.

Showcasing our finest pigments and textures, this collection unites colour and technology, providing innovative, hybrid formulas within everyday make-up essentials.

The collection includes two shades of a new nail color called Nail Veil, a “fast-drying, oxygen and water permeable translucent gloss finish varnish”. (This seems like another product catering to Muslims who want water permeable nail polish, like Inglot’s O2M Breathable Nail Enamel.)

The rest of the collection includes a Vital Palette (4 nude matte powder eyeshadows), Beyond Powders (which launch on April 21 and look similar to Hourglass Ambient Powders), Brow Build, and Masquara Gain. Happy shopping!

Inglot has just released a new collection of deep, wintery Matte finish shades in their existing O2M Breathable Nail Enamel line. This product is supposed to allow air and water to permeate the dried polish and reach the nail.

Apparently, this quality has made the polish popular amongst Muslim women:

While nothing in the Quran references nail polish explicitly, Muslims believe it’s important that water make contact with the nail during a washing ritual ahead of praying.

The collection also includes other matte-finish products:

INGLOT is introducing a matte collection that consists of AMC Eyeliner Gel, Kohl Pencil, and O2M Breathable Nail Enamel Soft Matte available in new trendy colours. Choose from:

– 4 new shades of AMC Eyeliner Gel
– 2 shades of Kohl Pencil
– 8 Shades of O2M Breathable Nail Enamel Soft Matte

Inglot’s O2M Matte It Be collection comes in 8 pastel, matte-finish shades. The polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and camphor. They are 0.37 fl oz / 11 mL and retail for CA$22. Inglot is available internationally, so you can check out Inglot’s main site for purchase prices and options in other countries.
