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

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.

    Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊

    @cheriethanks for the cute sweatshirt! I am obsessed. Here is my am routine! sisley - FLORAL TONING LOTION First I tone and prep my skin with this toner. I love this toner so much because it is so hydrating and doesn’t strip the skin. It also moisturizes while helping to clean and prep it to absorb other products. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Then I use this essence. I love this brand so much and this essence is so hydrating and light. It helps plump and prepares it for the serum. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% Next I use this serum which I have been enjoying. It is super gentle that I can even use it during the day. So far my skin has been tolerating it very well. I also notice my dark spots decreasing much quicker. LORD JONES - Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer Then I use this moisturizer that I am obsessed with. It so far has been my favorite product of the year. It’s so hydrating and calming. It feels amazing on the skin as well. Last I finish off with a sunscreen. I previously reviewed this before! It’s from Korean brand Corthe. ^^ what do you like to do in your morning routine?

    There is 𝗻𝗼 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗻 without 𝘀𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻. And, the 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻 is the one that you will wear religiously. Is 𝗜𝗦𝗗𝗜𝗡 𝗘𝗿𝘆𝗳𝗼𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗮 𝗔𝗴𝗲𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗨𝗹𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 tinted mineral sunscreen worth the hype? #Isdin - ISDIN Eryfotona Ageless Ultralight tinted mineral sunscreen[products]#[FourStars] Pros ☀️ 𝗠𝗶𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹 sunscreen aka physical blocker, thus broad spectrum ☀️ Contains 𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝘅𝗶𝗱𝗲𝘀, though unclear of percent. May provide protection against blue light. ☀️ One of the few tinted moisturizers that blends in well in skin of color. The tint is so homogenous and nice that you can away with not applying foundation after. ☀️ Contains 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝘁𝗼𝗹𝘆𝗮𝘀𝗲, an enzyme, that help repair damage caused by the sun. Not too thick or too thin, apply easily on the skin. ☀️ contains 𝗩𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗻 𝗘, an antioxidant as well as moisturizing Cons 🥴 𝗢𝗶𝗹𝘆, would not recommend for oily skin 😱 $$$ 𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲, it is definitely a splurge when there are comparable more frugal options out there.

    This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!
