Using nail polish during haidh

Q: Can girls put nail polish when they are having periods? I have heard that girls cannot put nail polish even in periods because if they die while having nail polish it cannot be removed once a person dies, so their namaaz-e-janaaza cannot be performed. Is it true?


A: If it is porous, and there is nothing impure in it and nor does it resemble the ways of the kuffaar, then it will be permissible.

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

( و ) لا يمنع ( ما على ظفر صباغ ) … به يفتى

و في رد المحتار : قوله ( به يفتى ) صرح به في الخلاصة وقال لأن الماء شيء لطيف يصل تحته غالبا ا هـ ويرد عليه ما قدمناه آنفا ومفاده عدم الجواز إذا علم أنه لم يصل الماء تحته قال في الحلية وهو أثبت (رد المحتار 1/154)
