Not being naturally stylish or beautiful, I've never been here. I rashly painted my nails with number 7 navy blue varnish. I have done it twice. It is very pigment dense and stains your nails. When I am colour free, it looks as if my hands are dead or very cyanosed. How can I remove the staining? I already know to use a base coat in future, but would like to be nail varnish free for a couple of days. Thanks in advance.
Just guessing here - how about cutting a lemon in half and putting your finger tips in the lemon for a while, might bleach them? I've also seen in Superdrug that Scholl (I think) do a pen like thing for taking the yellow stains out of nails - sorry I can't remember much more as I only glanced at it, you could have a look for it . Good luck
Thought of another !!! how about soaking nails in some warm water with a bit of Bio washing powder /liquid in ? then give your hands a good wash after and slap on some hand cream just to counteract the dying effect ? It's these £5 off No 7 vouchers they always end up costing us more in the long run !!
I am considering cleaning the bathroom, unfortunately I saw the advice when I got home from shopping. I only have Mr Muscle squirty cleaner. Nothing granular. The only toothpaste we have in the house is Paradontax and Signal. No whitening stuff either. Hey ho, it's the corpse bride look for me.
Same thing happened to me with a bright orangey red varnish, I went to see a proper nail technician and she told me Id have to wait til it grew out. She buffed them a bit which did fade it down a little but still v obvious. Id buy a cheap polish in a neutral colour and use it til they grow out
