Googled it and discovered its some bacterial infection due to wearing false nails for a few weeks - urgh.. First time i've used them and I get this!

Anyone had it? Any tips on how to get rid of it & how long will my nails be green?

Ugh, I've had this from wearing false nails too. File them down and buy some Scholl anti fungal treatment (comes with strong files anyway). It paints on like a polish and it
should be gone within a couple of weeks at most.

If it's just a greenie then it's fine just leave it. Once exposed to air it'll get better on its own.
It's unlikely to be fungal. Fungal infections cause yellowing, thickening and a smell.
