I so understand how you feel girl. I am alway painting my nails because i just love to. I started getting the same problem but then I found out that you can get rid of it. When taking of the nail polish make sure you use a good nail polish remove. One with vitiam e. Then after your done taking the nail polish off, wash your hands with warm water and soap. Dry them really good and put loation on your hands. Make sure you focus getting the loation on your nails and rub it around it. Making the nails mostiruez with help prevent yellowness

Lemons work great! Just cut one and rub for about 2 minutes and they should be whiter right away

I usually use a file and gently file the entire nail bed.

Try a nail polish remover that is purple, purple is yellows "complimentary" color on the color wheel, this means it should neutralize the yellow, or make it go away, if there is not enough purple in the remover, try painting them purple for a day then remove.. Should help I had a similar problem with red on my toes, it stained them.. I used green.

Regular nail hygiene and house stain removal methods are usually effective at removing discoloration to expose healthy and beautiful nails. You should scrub your nails using a nail brush and warm soapy water. Make use of a cleanser that contains tea tree oil if you feel it is a fungal infection and clean beneath the nails using a nail stick before rinsing off soap with clean, warm water.

Take a Qtip and dip it in diluted bleach - rub over nail bed. Wash your hands thoroughly and dry, afterwards. Give your nails a day or two break from polish and keep them moisturizer with a little olive oil. Voila!

Make sure to use a base coat before putting a colored polish on in the future. That way it won't stain your nails in the first place. For now I would try what the others said. Good luck. :-)

Saw this on The Drs show a few weeks ago (try to google it)... Soak nails in water with a denture cleaning tab. Then use a nail brush. Seemed to work wonders!! Check it out!

Take all of your nail polish off completely and just don't wear nail polish for a week , your nails need a break then you should be good
