❌No More Yellow Nails: 6 Ways to Get Rid of Them

Jul. 27, 2020
Accept it, no one is flawless. Many a times it happens that your body reacts negatively when you try and experiment things. This is certainly the case when it comes the fingernails. If you don’t give them sufficient time to respire regularly and apply too much polish, it will result in discolored fingernails. And sometimes even bacteria can lead to discoloring of your nails. 
Since this is nothing to be ashamed of and can be a pretty quick fix, the below mentioned are some of the fastest, easiest and most appropriate ways to get rid of yellow nails! 
  • Avoid using plentiful of dark nail polish and apply a base coat before nail paint.
  • When you apply a darker shade and later remove, it doesn't get off completely. It leaves behind stain on your fingernails with remaining dyes. A simple method to avoid that from happening is to always use a clear base coat before applying the polish. A base coat not only improves the longevity of your nail polish but it also seals and protects against staining the nails. Plus, using a base coat adds a layer between your nails and the polish which works as a shield. There are also base coats available which are intended to correct the color and enhance your nails before applying your polish.
  • Use a buff board to get rid of the stained top layer.
  • If you've recently discovered that your nails are beginning to get discolored, consider using a buffing board and scrape some of the top layer of the nail. Make sure you don't scrub away too much, because of the fact that you want to keep your nails secure and strong. This may however help the discoloration to vanish if it is not too severe.
  • Massage your nails with lemon juice or with a whole lemon.
  • You don't want to soak your nails too long in anything that's super acidic, but lemon juice is a great option to massage on your nails to eliminate any yellowing. You can use a whole lemon, slice it in half, and rub on each nail for about a minute, or soak a cotton ball into lemon juice and thoroughly rub each nail. Allow the lemon juice to be absorbed and dried for about 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water and you’re good to go. The lemon juice can lighten your nails much the same way it lightens your hair when sprayed on and exposed to the sun.
  • Using Hydrogen Peroxide and baking soda.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide with 2-1⁄2 tablespoons of baking soda in a small cup. Using a cotton bud, cover the whole fingernail with the paste you prepared. Let the paste stay on for 3 minutes, then rinse with water. Repeat the cycle every 6 to 8 weeks. If baking soda is not available, then water should work just as well. One portion of the hydrogen peroxide may be combined into three parts of water to whiten the nails. Combine the mixture in a small tub and soak the nails for 10 minutes. Then, make sure to thoroughly clean your nails and apply some moisturizer.
  • Apply whitening toothpaste to the nails. 
  • Apply a thin coat of toothpaste containing hydrogen peroxide on all the yellowed fingernails. Using a soft bristled toothbrush or your fingertips rub your nails and let the toothpaste stay on your nails for about 10 minutes, then rinse with clean water. Apply lotion or moisturizer to your hands and nails after rinsing off the toothpaste, to keep them hydrated. Use this remedy 2-3 times a week on a regular basis for best results.
  • Use tea tree oil and apply to your nails.
  • If it's not the polish that's causing the discoloration of your nails, you would possibly have a nail fungus. It’s unusual, but it does happen. To seek a home remedy to fix the problem, drop a little tea tree oil on your nail surface and leave for a few minutes to settle, and then rinse with warm water. Repeat this remedy twice a day for a few months to see the best results until you notice a considerable change.
    Stained and yellowed nails can be extremely unattractive, particularly if you want to give your nails time to breathe between polishes. It's pretty easy to treat and avoid yellowed fingernails due to nail polish, needing only a few basic household products and some sensible nail care.
    And when everything else fails and you're unable to get rid of those yellow stains, get a professional manicure from an expert in the salon. Usually, a thin film of transparent tissue covers the nail and that's the cuticle. Most of the time, simply having a great salon manicure can solve the problem as the expert knows the difference between cuticle and eponychium and the stain vanishes once the cuticle is removed.

    At Home Exfoliating Facial ✨✨
    At Home Exfoliating Facial ✨✨
    So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚

    Hi Army!
    Hi Army!
    Beauty is always evolving. That's why I'm never afraid to switch up and thing or two. When I started my beauty journey, I only wore eyeliner. I was so afraid to try other products because of the stigma that was on "makeup" and how it would make your skin look, etc! But once I realized my passion for Beauty such as makeup, skincare & hair, I asked myself "Why am I listening to everyone else?" and from that day forward, I've been discovering so many great things about my skin, what products are my favorite and what I do & don't like. Finding the perfect products for you can be a mission, but lately It's been a bit easier on my friends & I by using the Cherie beauty app. Not only do I get to explore products that I'd probably walk past in the store, but I get to read reviews and watch people with the same skin & hair type as me express their love or hate for the products! Now instead of listening to people say beauty is bad, I get to be in a community full of people all around the world who share the same passion. It's exactly what I wish I had at the beginning of my journey! Can’t wait to share more with you guys! 💕
    Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
    Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
    I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
    A Journey of Self 🌹
    A Journey of Self 🌹
    I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
