- It is permissible to apply nail polish during menstruation, but it is better to avoid it because it might be Makrouh ( disliked). It is Makrouh during menstruation period to apply Hina and some Ulama take the nail polish as type of Hina. After all, every Makrouh is permissible but better to avoid it.
- It is recommended for female during menstruation to wear her Prayers dress and sit at her place of Salah ( Namaz) and remember Allah for a time which is equal to her usual time of Prayers in her usual days.
