I was wondering: You know how ur allowed to wear socks for 24 hours after Wudu and so you dont have to wash the feet over and over if u keep the socks on....well, wouldnt the same thing apply for nail polish? if you clean the nails while making Wudu, then immediatley put on polish to seal in the cleanliness, couldnt you also keep this on for 24 hours? I know we are not supposed to adorn ourselves with bright colored polishes, but i feeel happy and femenine when i have nice clear polished shiny nails. What do u think?

Here's what I've found...Hope it helps!
If a woman has wudu and then wears nail polish on top of that, is her wudu valid? Can she do 'masa' over that nail polish for one full day, as is the case with socks? Please clarify. Jhazak Allahu Khair,

Answer from Sheikh Muhammad Ali Al-Hanooti:
I recommend that women to avoid nail polish as much as she can in order to be certain that her wudu is valid because all the answers regarding the use of nail polish says is affects wudu. I don’t see that analogy (qiyas) is possible in ‘Ibadat (worship) so you cannot compare wiping over nail polish with wiping over socks.
