Introducing Our New ORLY Collection of Halal Nail Polish

We are so excited to announce our new collaboration with ORLY called #HalalPaint, a collection of six halal-certified, water-permeable nail polishes made for Muslim women, by Muslim women. The collaboration is the first of its kind, where a major American beauty brand has teamed up to release a collection catering specifically to us!

Talk about Shariah Claw, amirite?

The reason why this collection is so freaking awesome for our #MuslimGirlProblems is because it’s made from 100% halal ingredients (so like, it’s legit halal-certified) and it’s actually permeable to water and air. That means that it lessens the barrier that varnish creates against your ablution water and promotes nail health! It’s even vitamin-enriched with argan oil, vitamins C and B5, and all the goodies your beautiful hands need.

The nail polishes feature tailored names created by us with you in mind, like “Haram-Bae” and “Wallah Bro Wipe Out”, as well as names inspired by common names for Muslim girls, like “What the Fatima?”, “Ig-Noor the Haters”, and “The Perfect Amani-cure”, named after our founder and #HEIC Amani Al-Khatahtbeh.

Many of us are the girls who could never find our names on a keychain, so of course we wanted to provide that experience for our #MuslimGirlArmy through this collection.

This collaboration with ORLY is a major way that we are making space for diversity in the beauty industry. There’s no reason why options shouldn’t be available for all women to practice beauty in the way that suits them and satisfies their needs.

We’re not defined by mainstream industries, we’re redefining them.

You can get your hands on the collection here!

    How is this different from inglot other than your name is on it? Orly is not a Muslim company and no shuyookh seem to be involved here. Shame you didn’t team up w existing Muslim breathable brands.

      The main reason why in islam nail polish is not allowed is not about the ingredients, but when cleaning up, polish does not allow water to penetrate through.

      • Antoinette Haren

        Do the test. I did. I pit the polish on paper. I let it dry the I put water over it and sure enough the water went through

    like the Rachel’s point.Look for a Halal company to buy and support there Halal products,Look for a brand called VIVRE which is getting ready to launch there line of halal and vegan products which are made in the USA.

    • Rachael

      Thanks for this! The only Muslim brands I heard of before this were Maya Cosmetics and Tuesday in Love. Great experiences with them. Will check out vivre.

      The names are completely disrespectful, just for the cool factor :(

  • Maryam Salman

    “What the Fatima?” is this seriously the name? I find this very offensive. Fatima (peace and blessings upon her) was an incredible Muslim women from our history. To replace her name with a swear word is so offending and I am just appalled we would use her name this way. Please consider changing it.

    • xxBastet

      Even speaking as a non Muslim, I find the naming of these products offensive. Besides sounding gimmicky it seems to be a ploy to sell product. I’m sure there could have been many more names the could have used that wouldn’t have offended the people they were marketing to.

        Assalaamu alaikum!

        A nail polish company is launching a nail polish titled “What the Fatima”. This play on words is derogatory and disrespectful to one of the most significant women of Islam.

        After several attempts to contact them requesting them to change the name, they have ignored our plea. We are asking the community to sign a petition to request them to change the name.

        Please help support our cause by signing this petition and standing up for the blessed daughter of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ; someone whom Heﷺ loved and literally stood for each time she entered the room.

        JazakAllahu khair! Wassalaam!

  • Nia

    Not sure where I should begin, change the polish name and DO NOT call it what the Fatima? Do you not know who Fatima is? And you using it in a phrase like that, where people are constantly using swear words, it does not matter if you change the word, everyone know what the original phrase is, be more creative be more original. Did you get actual Shaikhs/scholars to test this? Just by putting halal ingredients does not make it halal, you completely forgot the reason why nail polish is not allowed in the first place.

  • Adelwolf

    What the hell – “Haram-bae”? You mean “Haram” as in “forbidden or proscribed by Islamic law” ? Are you just grabbing any Islamic/Arabic sounding word to fit into your catchy-pop-reference disaster of a promo video? Is that actually the name of the product? FFS…

  • Maryam

    I find it ironic that you use to give Tuesday in Love nail polish in your subscription box. Not only are they a Muslim owned company, but their polish actually works and allows water to go right through without having do all that rubbing nonsense? How come you guys didn’t team up with them and support a muslim company?

  • Maryam

    Oh… And here’s another smart move.. Turns out orlys ceo is a major zionist and islamophobe.. Really guys? https://www.change.org/p/amani-muslimgirl-com-muslim-girl-supports-israeli-defense-force-and-anti-islam-sentiment-with-orly

  • Reflecting Pool

    …well I thought it was cool…

  • Hanna

    for anyone doubting how “halal” this product was.. looks like Canadian brand Tuesday in Love just called them out on it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTDgANVty1A
