Why nails yellow how to treat or prevent it


Nails are porous and absorb pigment from polish. They also yellow from tanning and makeup. To prevent this from happening, always use a basecoat under your nail polish and use a UV basecoat if you tan. You can lightly buff the nails to remove the yellow.
