I have always had an issue with my nails. I started applying nail polish 10 to 15 years ago and have done so religiously on a weekly basis. I do my best to apply a good base coat to protect my nails but somehow they seemed to turn yellow after each polish application and removal. My panic increased with each time, I knew I had to let my nails breathe but I would be so embarrassed by their yellowish tint that I’d apply another color to hide the shame, and so the vicious cycle continued. Any regular manicured gal will agree that this is the worst situation! I tried so many products, cosmetic and pharmaceutical; they can be quite pricey but to no avail. They only give the illusion of whiter nails but do little to fix the problem.
A couple of weeks before giving birth I had to rest at home so I decided to do without the hassle of nail polish, I removed them then and during the 3 months after my delivery. To my surprise, day after day I started noticing a difference. My nails were actually turning white, I mean little kid white! I couldn’t believe it, and I became so in love with them that I hated having to apply polish again upon my return to work. But the consolation is that now whenever I feel like taking a break and letting them breathe, I can do so with pride because I have nothing to hide!
I recommend this technique for all you ladies suffering from this problem, let your nails breathe for a couple of months, you will be amazed by the results. Once you re-apply polish after the cleansing phase, make sure to have nude nails at least one day a week.
