PRZEMYSL, POLAND – Life for Muslim women just got a little more colorful thanks to a ‘Halal Certified’ nail polish. The Quran doesn’t prohibit nail polish – in fact it doesn’t even mention it, but some Islamic scholars believe it interferes with the washing ritual, since it blocks water from touching the nail’s surface.

Before Halal Certified existed, Muslim women would put nail polish on after the last prayer of the day and then remove it before dawn prayers. Now there’s O2M, a Halal Certified nail polish that allows oxygen and water to pass through the enamel to the nail’s surface.

The product has been around since 2009, but recently was put to the ‘Muslim Test.’ ‘O2M’ passed with flying colors and has been flying off the shelves ever since.

Now Muslim women can show their true colors without violating their religion.
