    This is so gross, I've just started getting nail polish manicures and all of a sudden, my nails have turned yellow! :yuk:
    They use a base coat, but I am sure this is from the polish.

    Any suggestions as to how I can get them back to normal? I don't want to have to wear polish all the time and my nails used to be pretty before this happened. Can I bleach them somehow???

    Please help!!

    they will return to normal colour - it's just a result of having worn nailpolish too long :flower:

    Right, but I can't go without the polish with them yellow...it looks so disgusting. Is there any fix to get them back to normal right away?

    hmm.. I allways thought taht the reason why nails turn yellow is because the polish sealed the nails off from oxygen..

    but there migth be another explanation :

    Is that doesnt work, you could just take a soft nail file and file away the thin top layer on the nails :flower:

    Thanks so much :flower:
    I'll try both of those.

    I also read on another website to try soaking in bleach and water, and then scrub with whitening toothpaste. I may have to try that too, although I'm afraid the bleach will hurt my nails.

    also, get a buff manicure where they just buff your nails and don't put polish on

    Always remember to use a base coat, then the polish color you use will stay on the base coat not your nail.

    I do always use base coat, I think it must be the base coat that is discoloring my nails.

    This is going to sound gross, but make sure you didn't get infected with a fungus. Many fungal infections discolor nails and require medical treatment. I bring my own tools and I always request that everything is sanitized before it is used on me.

    soak your finger fingers in lemon juice for a few minutes.

    Lemon juice or the peroxide solution works. I've used both in the past when my nails went yellow.

    Sorry, I meant finger nails. I wouldn't try bleach, you may have an allergic reaction or something. Good luck.
