Toe Tips & Nails

1. Why are my nails yellow after I take my polish off?

Explanation

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.
