1) What is a « halal nail-coat » ?
The word « halal » is only used because lots of people have called this way the kind of nail-coat that eases every day life of people who pray. There are two sorts of halal nail-coats: the permeable one, and the soluble one.
2) What is a permeable nail-coat?
This is a nail-coat that is permeable to water and air and thus let water go through when the person performs her ablutions. It avoids losing time by removing nail-coat at each prayer time.
3) What is a nail-coat lifespan?
Lifespan of our nail-coat is not different from other nail-coats sold everywhere else. It is 2 years generally it the flask is well closed and kept away from light. After this time, and if your nail-coat has kept it colour and texture, there is no danger for you nails if you want to use it.
4) How does water pass through the nail-coat?
Water passes through thanks to the composition of the nail-coat that includes water and oxygen. Ethics of our nail-coats will pleased you too, since brands use neither animal materials nor alcohol.
5) How many layers can I apply so that the nail-coat is still permeable?
It is essential to not apply more than 2 layers in order to let the water pass through.
6) How long do I let water drain so that it passes trough my nail-coat?
You must rub your nail to help the water pass through; it is not a question of seconds.
7) A permeable nail-coat, is this the same thing as a permanent nail-coat?
No, permeable nail-coats have the same wear time as other nail-coats.
8) Are there some tests from bloggers on the Internet?
Yes. Lots of tests of our halal nail-coats made by famous bloggers can be found, as in the list below:

9) What is a soluble nail-coat?
It is a nail-coat that can be removed very easily as soon as it is in contact with water. It avoids the person wearing it to use remover and avoids waste of time since the person can remove it while performing her ablutions.
10) Is there a fatwa on permeable nail-coat?
Yes, there is a fatwa that you can listen here.
A woman asks: Is it allowed to use a nail-coat that does not prevent water from passing through and from touching the skin?
From what I know about nail-coat it’s that it prevents water from touching the skin. If so, one must remove this nail-coat before performing her ablutions.
I know no make up that can do that (let water touch the skin), if there is a layer between nail and water, then this is forbidden. But if this nail-coat really let water touch the nail, then performing ablutions with this kind of make up is allowed.
