Muslim Girl Teams Up With Orly To Create #HALALPAINT

Orlynails 2“This line is important because there are so many girls and young women who aren’t represented in mainstream beauty. They either don’t fit that definition or see things about them that are designed without them, instead of for them and by them, This is our way of bridging that gap.”_Azmia Magane chief of staff

Los Angeles-based Orly has teamed up with lifestyle website to create a limited-edition set of nail polishes called #HalalPaint.  The collection has been released at the idea time.  This is the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.  The collection polishes are made from 100 percent halal ingredients.  The Halal paint have been certified halal by the Islamic Society of The Washington Area. The Arabic word “halal” simply means permissible, and is used to denote items that fit within various religious requirements.  The ORLY polishes are permeable to water and air. This is important because of a ritual washing, called wudhu, that Muslims perform before prayers.


As part of the prayer ritual, Muslims are instructed to wash their hands and arms, up to the elbow. Water must reach all parts of the hands. Some Muslim women forego wearing nail polish because they are concerned it may interfere with this requirement, since it may act as a barrier and prevent water from reaching their nails. For those who have this concern, “halal” nail polish is a potential solution.  The collaboration with aims to present a viable beauty solution for Muslim women, as well as a new way to promote nail health.





#HalalPaint is named after the Muslim Girl Army itself, featuring shades like “What The Fatima?”, “Ig-Noor The Haters”, “Haram Bae”, and “Wallah Bro Wipeout.”

ORLY’s #HalalPaint’s “breathable” formula technology claims to result in longer wear and less chipping, and eliminates the need for basecoats or topcoats. It’s also infused with nutrients like argan oil and vitamin C.
