I love my nail polish but it can definitely do some damage to my nails if I’m not careful. I wear nail polish almost every day. I tend to use darker colors in the colder months and lighter colors or a clear gloss in the warmer months. After months of nail polish wear, I need to do some spring nail care and start focusing on removing stains from nails that are turning yellow.

Spring Nail Care – Removing Stains from Nails

Yellow stains are typically caused by wearing darker nail polish colors.  Since I tend to wear darker nail polish colors in the colder months, removing stains from nails is something I need to do each spring as I start to transition away from darker colors.

Materials:

  • Nail buffer
  • Lemon juice
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Baking Soda
  • Small bowl

Directions:

  • Using the nail buffer, gently buff the top surface of your nails. VERY GENTLY. You are actually removing a portion of the nail when you buff them so do not do this often or very hard.

  • Soak your nails in lemon juice for 10 minutes. Ideally, this should be done daily until you’re pleased with the results. If you don’t have time for that, proceed to the next step.

  • Using 1 tablespoon of  hydrogen peroxide, make a paste with 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Rub it on your nails and let it sit for 10 minutes. Repeat every other month.

The best way to remove stains from nails is to prevent them from happening. Always use a base coat when applying nail polish and try to take a break in between each polish change.  If you do end up with yellow stains on your nails, following this process should remove them. It works for me!
