The ultimate guide to breathable nail polish

Breathable nail polish ?  A new trend ? YES……..and it’s here to stay!

Breathable nail polish is certainly becoming popular worldwide particularly among women who are looking for healthier alternatives to the traditional nail polish that they have been using. It is also gaining worldwide recognition and acceptance among Muslim women.

LENA breathable nail enamel was launched in 2016 with the aim to create a healthier alternative to conventional nail polish and that it would protect the health of the nails. LENA nail polishes are made with a special polymer which allows water and oxygen to pass through the nail polish.


We are all aware that wearing conventional nail polish consistently will eventually make our nails weaker and therefore susceptible to breakages and also leading to discoloration. You may ask yourself why this occurs with traditional nail polish and the answer is simply because nail polish creates an impermeable layer preventing oxygen and moisture from reaching the nail bed. LENA breathable nail polishes have been specifically designed to tackle this issue by allowing oxygen and moisture to reach the nail.

For nail polish lovers who want to dig deeper in to the structure of our breathable nail polish formula then it can be explained by simple chemistry. Traditional nail polish consists of tight molecular bonds which are stacked in straight lines directly on top of each other restricting access to the nail , whereas our breathable nail polish has the kind of structure which allows air and water molecules to pass through the structure with ease.

Some advantages of breathable nail polish:

  • According to research it has been shown that using breathable nail polish can last longer than traditional nail polish. This is a great advantage for nail polish users as it prevents the need of consistently reapplying nail polish.
  • We are aware that leaving nail polish on your nails all the time is not ideal for nail growth and nail health. But seriously if you are the type who does not want your nails to be without nail polish then breathable nail polish is exactly what you need.
  • If you love wearing nail polish then with our special formula you can wear nail polish whilst at the same time you can be promoting nail growth and nail health.
  • LENA Breathable nail polish has a smoother texture than conventional nail polish giving it a more luxurious finish and giving you added pleasure whilst applying it to your nails.
  • Our breathable nail polishes have a fast drying time, so look no further if time is of the essence when painting your nails.
  • Breathable nail polishes have always been more expensive and it is our aim to bring breathable nail polish prices in line with traditional nail polishes so that you can enjoy healthier nails without breaking the bank.

So why did Muslim women around the world expressed their excitement upon the release of LENA Breathable Nail Polish in 2016?

Other than a lesser harmful alternative to traditional nail polish, LENA breathable nail polish is well suited to the fashion conscious Muslim woman.

So, why the excitement for Muslim women, you may ask? Well, for many Muslim women, manicures and pedicures have always posed a religious concern amongst them. This is because they have to perform a pre-prayer ablution (wudu) which requires them to wash their hands and feet. The conventional nail polish has been mostly avoided because it prevents water from getting in contact with the nails; and now, LENA have found a great solution for this concern; they have introduced their breathable collection. LENA nail polish is an exciting new “breathable” Halal Nail Polish, meaning it is water and oxygen permeable. Moisture and oxygen can make contact with the fingernails even though you have applied nail polish.

The LENA breathable nail polish is an innovative nail lacquer with a special formulation allowing moisture and oxygen to reach the nail bed promoting healthier nails. Rest assured, that using the LENA breathable nail polish you are getting a salon quality finish even when you do your manicure or pedicure in your own home. Furthermore, you will be kinder to your nails protecting them from moisture deficiency and discoloration. To achieve a salon quality finish simply apply a layer of base coat, followed by two thin layers of the color until totally opaque. If looking for a glossy finish then simply add a layer of top coat.

LENA water permeable nail polish is a creamy, highly pigmented formula and comes with a good sized, high quality brush allowing it to be easily applied evenly to the nail resulting in a luxurious finish. For a high quality finish use LENA Breathable Base coat and LENA Breathable Top coat. The smooth texture and durability also makes it perfect for all types of nail art. LENA breathable nail polish is not only easy to work with but will make you feel stunning with it’s glossy and luxurious finish.
