You could get a French manicure. You can buy kits to do it in Boots or go somewhere to have it done. Rimmel sell a Whitening nail polish (it's a pinky White colour). I used to buy a brilliant one which was an ultra violet colour from Nailoid but they've stopped it.

Otherwise the pink Chanel or pale Opi are great IMO and colour a multiple of sins.

i have been using a kit - think it is boots no 7 - very nice

soak in lemon juice...or buy whitening powder from boots in the nail section

Ok , first of all get your arse onto the NAil Nibblers thread for support in times of need.

NEXt buy RIMMEL WHITENER, a sheer pinky white varnish that is brilliant at getting rid if yellow and lasts longer than the Barbara daly stuff from Tesco's.

There's a nail whitening pencil in M&S, you just "scribble" it under your nails. You have to keep it sharp though. Makes your nails look amazing.

ooo that nail whitening pencil sounds good

It does a bit, but if you keep on with it you can varnish "down your nails" a bit - fun to pick off grin
