How to prevent/get rid of yellow nails

First - We have to examine what makes nails go yellow

Its either one or a combination of the following things:

-Using a dark colored nail polish often esp with no basecoat

-Vitamin Deficiency (try some iron or zinc tablets)
-Fungal Infection (they will look thickened and crumbly)
-Liver Problem

So, If its not a medical problem
The following instructions will tell you the best 
way to brighten your nails.

If you think you might have a medical condition
such as something wrong with your liver, please go to
the doctor.Your nails are a very good way to measure
your bodily health.

1) Go to the pharmacy and buy some denture tablets
specifically for making teeth whiter

Now take a bowl of warm water put

in a couple tablets and let your nails 
soak for as long as possible.
Watch tv or something while you wait.
Try and keep them in for at least 15 mins.

When you get tired of them being in there 

take them out and squeeze some lemon juice 
all over the nails. Let this soak in for at 
least 10 mins.

Wash your hands

Take your 4 sided nail buffer that I
mentioned in my earlier post on nail care

Now put on some cuticle cream
& also put on a nice hand lotion.

You should give your nails a break from 
nail polish every now and then esp if you are 
trying to brighten your nails.
If you must wear some - use a couple coats of
basecoat & light colors.

Also - It will definitely benefit you to take a Iron
vitamin in general but esp. for this problem of 
yellow nails.


If you never see improvement - you might have an
underlying medical condition. Seek help accordingly :)

[Nails grow at an average rate of 
3 millimeters a month ( 1/8 inch)
Fingernails require 3 to 6 months 
to regrow completely ]

Be patient and eventually your nails 
will whiten and/or fresh 
new nails will grow out. 
& now that you've changed your habits 
they will be a normal color 
& little by little you can cut 
off the yellow part.

Good Luck !

  2. It is true that the nails can reflect the health status of people, we often have medical problems, and naked eye we can realize what we have. To keep nails glad we can use generic viagra, this helps us to have healthy nails and also helps us in other things.
