Unless they are polished a bright yellow color, yellow fingernails are as unwanted as yellow teeth. But many things can turn your natural fingernails yellow, from nail polishes themselves to even certain medications some people take. But don’t worry, Kandee got your back, or your nails!
SIMPLE HOME MADE NAIL TREATMENT to WHITE + BRIGHTEN YOUR FINGER OR TOENAILS!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- a bowl
- distilled white vinegar (and no, I’m not sure apple cider vinegar or any other vinegar would work as well)
- lemon juice or lemons (lemons have mild bleaching properties due to their high citric acid content)
- nail brush
If you have any cuts or torn cuticles you might want to wait to they heal, because the lemon juice will sting any cuts like cray cray.
Fill a small bowl with water, enough to submerge all your fingernails or toenails. Squeeze the juice of an entire lemon into the water. Or you could try squeezing concentrated lemon juice- enough that it looks like lemonade.
YOU SOAK YOUR NAILS IN THE LEMON JUICE FOR 10 MINUTES
POUR OUT THE LEMON JUICE RINSE THE BOWL FILL IT WITH EQUAL PART WATER AND VINEGAR DIP A SOFT NAIL BRUSH IN THE VINEGAR-WATER SOLUTION & LIGHTLY BUFF YOUR NAILS FOR A MINUTE OR TWO, OR THREE IF THEY ARE REAAAAALLY YELLER.
RINSE REALLY WELL WITH WARM WATER & SLATHER ON YOUR FAVORITE MOISTURIZER… and voila… yellow be gone!
