What you’ll need: Lemon, Baking Soda, Small bowl and Washcloth
Nail polish lovers, we all have this problem. Whether you forgot to put a base coat on or you just wear nail polish everyday, yellow stained nails are the worst. I aim for my nails to look healthy with or without nail polish. Hopefully this method works in order to lighten up stained nails. Let’s begin!
Here’s how to make the paste:
You’ll need baking soda and fresh lemon/lemon juice. In a bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon of baking soda and a about 5-10 drops of lemon juice. There will be a fun bubbly reaction. Mix and this should form a paste.
Here’s how to use the paste:
Make sure you have no cuts around on your fingers and nails because the lemon will sting like no other. You’re going to apply this paste directly onto to your nails for 10 minutes. Afterwards, massage the mixture into your nail beds. Then, take a washcloth to rub off the paste. Wash your hands, apply cuticle/hand cream, and you’re done!
You should be left with healthier looking nails. The yellow tinge may not go away completely, but it should noticeably lighten up. Let me know if you try this on your nails!
