8 Best Nail Design Ideas for Eid al-Fitr

Eid al-Fitr is a time to dress up and look your best. You put all that time and effort into finding a brand-new Eid outfit, so now it’s time to think about a manicure that will complete your look. Perhaps you’re someone who gets manicures on the regular or you’re someone who likes to treat yourself on special occasions. Whatever the case may be, we’ve rounded up the best Eid nail art inspiration so you’ll have something to refer to at your next salon appointment.

Of course, Eid is also a time for prayer, and the permissibility of nail polish when offering salah prayer has long been contested. If this is a concern for you, talk to your manicurist about using halal nail polish to recreate these looks. Also known as breathing nail polish, halal nail polish basically works by allowing water and air to penetrate through the polish to the nail. This way, the prerequisite of ablution before prayer is not void — so you can do your nails and offer Eid prayer, too! From natural-looking nails that pair well with intricate henna designs to fresh spring polish colors adorned with floral nail art details, we’ve got a range of holiday-ready looks for you to choose from.
