Yellow Nails?

Hi dolls,
As you may know by now I'm a sucker for nail polish and I paint my nails now even 2 to 3 times a week! Sometimes I think it's a little to much but oh well, I love changing the color.
Yellowed nails are caused by layering nail polish on your nails, wearing nail polish without a base coat  and if you dont take care of your nails of course.
In my case I never used a base coat BEFORE putting on my nail polish, until now.

So I wanted to give you guys some tips on how to "get rid of" that yellow-ish color, which is super ugly unless you are wearing a nail polish over it.

1. Take off all of your nail polish completely
2. Squeeze quarter of a lemon into a small bowl (you don't need much)
3. Get whitening toothpaste and squeeze 3 to 4 inches into the small bowl
4. Mix together completely so that there are no chunks of toothpaste that haven't been spread out (this could take a while)
5. With a cotton swab or a brush paint the mixture onto your nails, then apply a second coat and maybe a third, and let it rest for 10-15 minutes
6. Repeat step 5 for about 3 to 4 times.
Remember to not wear nail polish for a day or 2 and you should be fine, just get a good base coat and remember to use it when you paint your nails :)

Hope this helps for you as well as it did for me
