1. Why are my nails yellow after I take my polish off?
There are many reasons for this. Here are just a few:
If you don’t have regular pedicures your nails will build up dead cells on the nail plate, which appear to be yellow or brownish.
The fast drying agents in nail polish are a big culprit as well.
Cheap nail polishes have cheap ingredients and when they are chemicals, like they are in nail polish, it can be very drying and damaging to the nail. When I was developing my nail colour formulas it took such a long time because I wanted the polish to dry fast, but I wanted to cause minimal drying to the nail plate as well. It is a fine line you have to work with to have both these ingredients.
Most polishes that say they will dry in 2 or 3 minutes will turn your nails yellow – literally over night.
Household cleaning agents can turn your nails and your nail polish yellow as well.

Satin+2 Speed Buff – With the purple side gently buff the nail plate. Turn the buffer over to the white side and buff your nails to a high shine.

***** TIP: Don’t leave your nail colour on longer than one week. Even if your colour is still looking good after one week, please remove and treat your nails before reapplying new colour.
