If you're constantly fooling around with dark nail polishes, then you know how dull + yellowed nails can look when you remove the lacquer and see your bare nails for real.
What causes the nasty discoloration?
The pigments in the darker shades can result in deep staining on the nail plate.
So, how do we continue to enoy our vampier manis + pedis without having to worry about the polish dyes yellowing our nails?
You could try a base coat BEFORE you apply the colored polish. This clear coat not only helps color to adhere, but also SEALS + PROTECTS the nail plate from staining.
But we suggest this simple, home recipe for brighter, whiter nails, because it really works.
All you need:
1 Tbsp.lemon juice added to 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a small bowl.
Dunk nails into the lemon/oil mixture. Soak for 10 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water + dry. Apply moisturizing lotion to seal in all the good stuff.
The lemon acid will lift stains and brighten, while the olive oil provides wonderful hydration for healthier nails.
