Breathable nail polish

Q: What is the ruling for breathable nail polishes available in the markets ?

A: If it is something like mehndi and the colours do not resemble colours used by kuffaar and it does not contain any napaak ingredient and it is porous then it is permissible. However, we discourage general makeup that is found in the market on account of the side effects and the type of material that is used.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
