Am I allowed to perform ablution while wearing breathable nail polish?

Am I allowed to perform ablution while wearing breathable nail polish?

Answer

Breathable nail polish is manufactured in a way which allows both air and moisture to pass through it to the nail. Therefore the nail polish becomes water permeable. Breathable nail polish is healthier as it allows the nail to breath. Therefore, in this case the nail polish is not waterproof and does not prevent water to seep into the nail and thus acts like the henna.
