Learn How To Get Rid Of Yellow Nails To Enjoy These 33 Stunning Nail Ideas

The top nail designs of 2022 are already known, and they’re good, even though the year’s overall vibe still feels hazy. While you could undoubtedly spend your additional indoor time this winter looking for them, we decided to do the work for you and compiled a list of every single nail trend worth saving that has appeared on our feeds in the last few months.

An essential and sufficient component is required for this modern nail design, though: your nails must be white, tidy, and not yellow. If you’re unlucky enough to have nails that easily yellow and frequently break before you can apply a lovely white French manicure design, you can use the three at-home nail whitening methods listed below before looking at our glitzy collection.

Eliminate Stains

Sometimes stains are only surface-level and can be removed without extensive soaking. Try lightly polishing your nails before using the brightener if you detect noticeable stains rather than the usual yellowing.

Apply a light amount of polish to your nail in a rapid X pattern using the smooth side of the polishing block while keeping it parallel to your nail. Only six strokes should be made per nail, and no more, as nails can become weak very fast.

Dilute With Hydrogen Peroxide

When used carefully, hydrogen peroxide is a natural brightener that can gently whiten nails without harming the underlying layers or causing ingrown toenails.

Simply combine one part hydrogen peroxide with one part water in a small basin. Soak for 15 minutes with your finger or toe in the bowl with the nail completely covered. Wash. Continue doing this every day until the stains and nails are whiter.

If used for more than 3-4 days, use coconut or sweet almond oil to hydrate and prevent dry cuticles.

Invest In Tea Tree Oil

Essential oils are a beloved tip for simple at-home whitening procedures and are also highly healthy for your nails. Some even have antibacterial and antifungal qualities added.

Apply a few drops of tea tree oil to your nails and let them absorb the oil. If you have sensitive skin, rinse off after 5 to 10 minutes. If your nails aren’t bright enough, keep it on all day and rinse it off as needed. Apply consistently for a few weeks to see incredible benefits.

Try applying a citrus essential oil, such as lemon or grapefruit, which also has skin-lightening effects if tea tree oil is not readily accessible.
