Have you ever noticed a yellowish stain on your nails after removing your polish? Yellow nails could be caused by several things, including some medical conditions. When it comes to nail polish, though, the yellowing is a result of your nails absorbing some of the pigment from the polish.
Your nails look yellow because the color from your polish has “stained” your nails. You’ve probably noticed that this happens much more often (and more dramatically) when you use darker shades of polish, like deep reds, browns or purples. Don’t try to scrape off the stained area because it will damage and weaken the nail.
In my experience, these are three methods that really work:
I know, I know – I also used to think that applying base coat was a completely useless step, but I can assure you that it isn’t! Not only does it help your polish stay on, it protects your nail big-time from stains. A base coat will provide a smooth case for your nail color, as well as protect and nourish your nail beds.
If you keep on your nail polish for a long period of time is because you nail can’t breath through the nail polish so it turns yellow! You can put on a nail polish color and leave it on for 5 days, and then take all of it off.
Did you know that you finger nails have to breath? well they do…
Like I mentioned before, if you continually paint your nails, and leave it of r a long period, they will turn a yellowy colour. This makes them unattractive and unhealthy. So clear off all nail polish, and rest your nails for at least two or three days.
