to use nail polish

Question ID: 31606

Dear Respected Mufti,
I had a discussion with some young girls recently regarding the wearing of nail polish during their menses, it seems it is becoming quite popular.
I explained that wearing nail polish would make your wudhu not valid as water would not reach the nails. And wearing it during their Haid cycle, is a big risk because should they die, then the ghusl that will be performed will be nulified as we cannot remove the nail polish when they perform the Janaaza ghusl. And so I said they shoudl stay away from it completely.
I drew this conclusion using my own logic, but they asked me if there was anything in Quran or Hadith to support this.
Please can you assist me.
