I'm declaring a war!

I'm a pacifist, but what's enough is enough. I'm declaring a war! A war against my yellow nails.

Here are my main weapons:
* Denture cleaning tablets
* Hydrogen Peroxide
* Baking Soda
* Lemon


Between every manicure I'll try one or the other method:
1) Soaking my nails in water with added denture cleaning tablet.
2) Soaking my nails in water with hydrogen peroxide & baking soda.
3) Soaking my nails in lemon juice.

I'll also use 2 coats of base coat. I'm gonna take pictures of my nails and I'll get back to you in a couple of weeks.

Sponge Bob isn't happy. He wants to be the only yellow thing I have.


Thanks for looking!

  4. Good luck! The key ingredient of the lemon is the essential oil contained in the skin (far more active and efficient than juice). Don't hesitate to press the skin against your nails. :)

  13. I never thought your nails were that yellow. :D

  17. I'd love to see if any of those work for you. Lemon and denture tablets didn't do much for me. If I have the correct translation of baking soda that did do some good but I haven't had the chance to try peroxide yet.

  18. Good luck! :) I swear by a weak bleach solution. I can't wait to see if one of these 'nicer' products work!

  19. Good luck on this, my dear. I just wanted to let you know that after using this as a basecoat that I got from Sally Beauty supply (found here: http://www.sallybeauty.com/Yellow-Stopper-Top-Coat/SBS-507100,default,pd.html) 2 times (2 coats for each mani) the yellow was gone!!
    I hope your solutions work for you. Can't wait to see the results. Your methods might be cheaper than this thing! :)

  22. Oh my! I can't wait to see the results! I heard the denture tablets work but I still haven't tried it out myself. I'm so tired of my yellow nails!! *gurrrr*
    I hope one of these methods will work for you! Thanks for doing this Nihrida!

  23. I'm gonna try it all!:))) I don't expect to see results over night...but we'll see what happens in few weeks.

  24. I think Hydrogen Peroxide isn't 'nicer'. :)))

  27. ill be lookinf foward for ur update on this blog... good luck i hope u'll find a very great way to remove yellow nails...
    P.S.
    once i tried a polish that made in china & after i removed the polish it turns my nails to yellow..my friend told me to use the 4 way buffer... i think i used it in a wrong way.. coz i file the slightly rough surface on my nails... though i know it will make my nail bed weak i still do it..but then the yellow layer on my nails are gone.. i tried that method once & ill never do it again...its up to u if u want to try it or not...

  28. I was scared! :P Uff.. It goes about nails. I didn't have this problem, so I can't help you. Good luck with them:))

  29. Thanks, Thriszha! Buffing just isn't the way to remove stains from nails, IMO. I gently buff them once a month (at most) just to make them smoother. I'm still rooting for preventive actions. :) We'll see what happens.
