I change my nail polish on a regular basis and my favourite colours happen to be dark, rich shades which are a nightmare to remove and stain your nails as well as the nail bed. It was only until recently that i invested in a decent nail base but the damage had already been done.
I have been left with horrible, yellow "smokers" nails which show through the lightest of polishes so darker shades of polish have now become a must. I even visited my gp regarding this issue thinking I had a fungal infection (disgusting I know) only for her to ask if I painted my nails alot?
Problem solved! Now for the solution.
I have tried remedies such as lemon juice and soaking my hands in water mixed with denture tablets but nothing worked. I visited the nail salon to enquire about acrylics and if they would cover the stains when the technician asked me if I had tried to buff them out. She sat me down, removed my polish and began to sand down my baby nail. In seconds the stain had lifted. I have since removed all my polish and began to tackle the remaining nails.
I used a buffer that I got in a hand and nail care set.
It took a while but the majority of the staining is gone and my nail surfaces are super soft.
"It's a miracle" true words as spoken by my boyfriend :)
