Palm shot, gulf-style henna design. Henna is the hand and fingernail decor of choice in this culture because the people here believe that since water can't penetrate fingernail polish, their wudu would be considered invalid. Since henna is a stain and penetrable by water they consider it acceptable. Posted by Hello

Hey RH,
thnx for commenting on my blog, just noticed ur comment. I have done additional tests mentioned in your comment, results returned clear and that was when i was diagnosed. I'll give the HBP a try again, but I believe the last time checked it was OK. Thnx again.
