NAIL FIX: Yellow Nails

8 Feb


Hey everyone! One of the problems that comes with polishing your nails with red and other dark colors is the color it leaves your  nail when taken off. I try to avoid this problem by using a clear base coat before applying the color, however, sometimes I’m not able to do so. So here are a few ways I am able to get my nails back to that clean, white color after using certain polishes. Try one of these the next time your nails need a little brightening.

1. Gently buff the nail- wash your hands- scrub your nails with a nail brush (If the color is still not to your liking, use a little whitening toothpaste)

2. Soak your nails in lemon juice

3. Make a paste of three tablespoons of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide-  apply the paste to the tops of your nails and underneath the tips-  leave on for 3 minutes, then rinse off
4. Soak in denture cleaner for 4 minutes

5. Use a whitening pencil (found at most drugstores) underneath the tip of your nails

Hope these options help!
