How to Whiten Yellow Nails
Most likely, your nails have been stained by this winter's dark polishes. Brighten up yellow spots by bleaching them in a DIY solution:
- Mix 1 tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide with 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking soda in a small plastic bowl.
- Use a cotton swab to press some of the pastelike mixture firmly under the tip of each nail as well as over the top of the nail, covering all the nails on one hand.
- Let mixture remain in place for about three minutes before rinsing with warm water.
- Gently buff the nail surfaces.
- Use a base coat like Sally Hansen Double-Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat to prevent future stains.
