My husband wants me to wear nail polish all the time. I had read somewhere that you have to take it off for your prayers, and this would then be very cumbersome for me. I don’t understand the logic of this ruling either. If you wear henna, it stains your hands and nails, and water cannot get under the dye to your skin for several weeks, but we know that henna is allowed, and has been worn for ages. What is the difference that makes nail polish not allowed, and therefore what might you suggest as an alternative that I could do to please my husband that won’t make my life difficult at the same time?
