Nowadays the nail polishes come in all colors and shades, from crystal clear to luminous black and ruby red to sapphire glitter, nail enamels have never been cooler as a stylish accessory or easier to match with our clothing. But for a number of people who use dark shades of nail polish on their fingers, removing the color may expose... yellowed, faded nails. You may shout….What to do about this?
The American Academy of Dermatology declares, dark color polish, in various shades of blue, brown, burgundy, black, can cause a chemical effect between the coloring agent and the nail outer plate, staining nails. Depending on the individual, this effect can take place in days to week. This is not bad and injurious for your nails because it is just on the surface. To avoid this from happening to flawless nails, apply an extra coating of base coat first before you apply the nail color.
If your nails are previously discoloured, you can utilize an emery board to file off some of the yellowing or allow your nails to grow out till the new nail color appears which generally takes almost four to six months.
I use lemon on my nails great for removing the yellow just cut lemon in half and squeeze juice on the nails leave for a few minutes it works
You want to know why your fingernails turn yellow if you leave nail polish on for a long time?? Well, I have the answer!!! Did you know that you finger nails have to breath, well they do!!! And I have done the same thing. You put on the nail - polish and you look at it and you really like it! So you say I will keep it on for a while and then I well touch it up, right???? Well at least, that is what I say!!! Okay, the reason it turn yellow if you keep on your nail - polish for a long period of time is because you nail can't breath through the nail polish so it turns yellow!!! Now I am a girl to, and I love, love nail - polish. Like it is the best thing that ever happened to me, besides having clothing and a boyfriend. I mean we have certain needs right??? Anyway, what you can do about it is that you can put on a nail - polish color and leave it on for 5 days, and then take all of it off. And make sure you leave it off for at least 2-3 days. Then you can put it back on, but make sure you keep a pattern, unless you like your nails yellow. I sure don't!!
Nails can turn yellow by you keeping a dark nail polish on for a long time or period. And you can help it by removing it 5 days after you put it on.
You can leave a light color nail polish on.But you can not with dark nail polish. And if you do not have nail polish removal use soap and water of peroxide
I think that 's because of the ingredients present in the nail polish which causes the nail turning yellow.This layer stops the epidermis of nail to breath freely.You can remove the nail-polish by a remover and then rub a piece of garlic to your nails three or four times a day ,the yellowness will disappear later.
Well I bit my nails for 55 years, I used to put on acrylics but it got too costly. So after I noticed my own nails had grown underneath, I had the acrylics removed and I haven't bit them since. They are soft and have been peeling, but I do know that having acrylics for 5 years can cause this, but just 2 of my nails have turned yellow. All I keep on is NutraNail Mineral nailcare, which is clear. I am on vitamins, calcium and really don't want to remove the nailcare because it seems to prevent me from biting them and makes them feel stronger.
Different beauty supply stores sell a special nail polish to remove the yellow.
I think its because of all the cemichals in this poisining such as pthtalate, fornaldehyde and toluene but its very pretty in other ways thats why I try my best not to wear it
