Yesterday, we talked about my simple Nail Care Routine, so today I thought I’d share with you a trick that I use to get whiter nails!
So many things can play a part in the discoloration of nails. I am here to tell you, that there are ways to defend your nails against yellowing without having to spend big money on a nail whitener. You can get whiter nails, in as quick as 60 seconds with this method! I know some people live by the whitening toothpaste method but to be honest, toothpaste is expensive and I don’t want to be spending money (that could be better spent on nail polish) on a whitening toothpaste to whiten my nails. Here is a simple, cheap and effective way to whiten your nails.
This DIY Nail Whitener works wonders! Dark nail polish is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to discoloring and staining your nails. Especially blues, I don’t know what it is about them but they almost always leave me with crazy colored nails, and I think to myself that just can’t be good. Here’s what you can do to fix it!
- Mix 1/2 cup of hot water into the bowl with 1 tsp of peroxide and 1 tbsp of baking soda.
- Dip your nails in and wait… this works quick, so in most cases within one minute the staining is gone and you’re good to go. For tougher stains, you can soak your nails for up to 10 minutes.
- Wash your hands and moisturize after you’re finished.
