I’ve Stained My Nails From Wearing Dark Nail Polish. What


I’ve stained my nails from wearing dark nail polish. What can I do to lighten them up?

The easiest and quickest way to solve this problem is to take a soft buffing block and very gently buff the surface of the nail to take away discolouration. Use the side of the block to buff to a shine and then apply cuticle oil to nourish your nails. Always remember to wear a base coat underneath your nail polish to avoid staining your nails.
