Get Those Dark Stains Out Of Your Nails


Do you love dark nail polish but hate the way it stains your nails? NYC manicurist Patricia Yankee offered up the following suggest to InStyle Magazine.

  • For average staining: Soak nails in a solution of 1/2 cup lemon juice and 1/2 cup olive oil.
  • For stubborn staining: Dab whitening toothpaste onto the nail beds. The agent works the same way they do on teeth! Rinse off and then buff to remove the top layer of stains.

In the future, be sure to apply a base coat to “create a barrier stains can’t penetrate”.
