 *press samples*

Hello everybody! Was it a manic Monday for you? I am delighted to say it wasn’t a busy Monday right here. The climate the final couple weeks have been completely beautiful. Fall all the time feels too brief right here in North Carolina, so I’ll relish cooler days. Tonight I’ve a really particular publish to share with you all. I imagine everybody ought to be capable of put on nail polish. I do not care about your race, gender, faith, or sexual orientation; if you wish to put on nail polish, it is best to rock it! I will admit that I used to be a bit uneducated in regards to the problem Muslim folks had find nail polish they may put on whereas training the faith. In keeping with the Muslim religion, the whole physique should be cleansed earlier than performing the 5 day by day prayers. Since conventional nail polishes type a bodily barrier from water and oxygen, it must be eliminated earlier than prayer after which reapplied. Who would wish to proceed to use and take away polish so usually? Not solely that, all the acteone wanted to take away the polish would wreck havoc in your nails and cuticles. 

Regardless of there being over a billion Muslims, there are only a few Halal nail polishes. When 786 Cosmetics contacted me about reviewing a few of their polishes, I jumped on the likelihood. I used to be so curious how the polishes would differ from conventional polish. For the reason that polishes want to permit oxygen and water to go by means of, I wished to understand how the applying and put on compares to conventional polishes. The primary time I keep in mind listening to a few bigger model making halal polish was when Orly made their Breathable line just a few years in the past. I am additionally actually completely happy that 786 Cosmetics has included their water permeability certifications by means of the Kalamazoo Islamic Heart and SGS Labs on their web site. Whew, that is quite a lot of info, nevertheless it’s info I believe is vital to know earlier than attending to pictures. The polishes retail for $12.95 every, and options cream, shimmer, and metallic finishes. Be certain that to enroll in emails as a result of they usually have gross sales to save lots of you some further dough. 

786 Cosmetics Izamal (3 coats)

I did not point out it earlier than, however all the polishes are named after cities. Izamal simply so occurs to be impressed by the Mexican metropolis, Izamal. Here’s what 786 needed to say about it: “Nicknamed “La Ciudad Amarilla” (or “The Yellow Metropolis”), Izamal is a small city within the state of Yucatan that’s well-known for its vibrant yellow buildings. The title Izamal means “dew that falls from the heavens.” Town was based practically 2,000 years in the past by the Maya and is believed to have been named after the traditional Mayan god Itzamna. Not solely will you discover the gorgeous painted metropolis wealthy in coloration, however it’s also wealthy in historical past as it’s house to historic temple pyramids.” 

Izamal the polish is a vibrant taxi cab yellow cream. Yellows are notoriously a tough pigment for nail polish, however I am completely happy to report that this one had a easy components and self-leveled properly. These polishes do not feel like your conventional polish; these have a extra plastic-y end to them which really feels very nice and easy. This is sensible because the expertise behind the polishes is much like that used for contact lenses which is what these remind me of. I went forward and used 3 skinny coats for these swatches, and I discovered that the polishes dried rapidly (even earlier than making use of a prime coat). 

786 Cosmetics Melaky (2 coats)

Up subsequent we have now Melaky which is impressed by “and named after the stone forest of Madagascar within the Melaky area. Discovered within the Tsingy de Bemaraha Nationwide Park, this UNESCO World Heritage Web site is understood for its distinctive geography, preserved mangrove forests, and wild hen and lemur populations.”

Melaky is a wonderful impartial taupe cream that could be very trendy and work applicable. I like utilizing shades like this as a palate cleanser when sporting a bunch of colourful polishes. It had an ideal components and achieved full opacity in 2 coats. I also needs to point out that these all are tremendous simple to take away as nicely. 

786 Cosmetics Patagonia (2 coats)

Final, however not least we have now Patagonia which is impressed by “the Marble Caves of Patagonia, Chile. The Marble Caves, additionally referred to as the Capillas de Mármol, fashioned over the past 6000+ years as water melted from close by glaciers and washed up towards strong rocks slowly carving out the caves. Over time, the minerals within the water triggered the caves to have blue, inexperienced, aquamarine, yellow, and black hues.”

The model describes Patagonia as a mint aquamarine cream, whereas to my eye (and skintone) it is extra of a pastel aqua coloration. For some cause I can not actually see the inexperienced tones as a lot. Both approach, I prefer to strive pastel shades on manufacturers I’ve by no means tried earlier than as a result of they will usually find yourself a bit chalky and are laborious to self-level. I am completely happy to report that I had no points with the components on this one both. 

786 Cosmetics Nail Rescue Primer 

I like nail primer, they usually despatched alongside the Nail Rescue Primer. That is NOT water permeable, so in case you are praying, don’t use this as your base. That is mentioned to strengthen weak and broken nails and you need to use it by itself or as a base to your favourite polish. A lot of these merchandise are likely to take some time to see a distinction on the nail, so I can not attest to its efficiency simply but. That mentioned, I did use it and it dried rapidly on the nail which is one thing I search for when making an attempt new strengthening base coats.

Izamal after 4 days of damage w/base coat and prime coat

Since this can be a components I’ve by no means used earlier than and is kind of completely different than your conventional polish, I wished to do a fast put on check. I went forward and used my favourite base and topcoats as a result of I understand how lengthy most polishes are likely to final with these (and I am not a training Muslim). I’m powerful on my nails since my job requires me to make use of them on a regular basis, so I by no means anticipate my polish to last more than just a few days with out tipwear and chips. The photograph above reveals Izamal after 4 days of damage, and aside from a chip on my index finger, the manicure seems to be actually good! 

There you have got it, people! Ideas on the model? I am so glad there are extra choices for training Muslims to put on nail polish, and I used to be very impressed with their polishes. Once more, they usually run gross sales, so make sure that to enroll in their emails. You’ll find out extra about 786 Cosmetics on their web site, Instagram, Twitter, Fb, and Pinterest pages.
