Yellow nails

I would like to wear my nails au natural at times but they can be horribly yellow at the tips where they should be white. Could it be the use of nail strengthener or something else? How do I get them to look healthy and white?

Denture cleaning tablets!
Soak for about 5 minutes smile

Lemon juice also very effective.

never thought to use denture cleaning tablets, I am off to buy some. Buffing doesn't help, that just weakens my nails. Any other tips?

Barbara Daly used to do a fantastic varnish that was clear with a slight blue tint that made the nail look sparkly white. It was incredible stuff, don't know of it's still around.

Yes I remember that, it was called no more yellow. I didn't find it helped though.

I use a Rimmel Nail White Pencil.

Give them a gentle scrub with an old toothbrush and some whitening toothpaste. Always works for me.

Good ideas! I have this problem with my toenails.

I will try each and every tip and report back as to which I find works the best. Starting with the lemon then toothpaste and finally the denture solution. Thanks
