Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV has been getting a lot of love from everyone for its benefits, and I am starting to see why. From hair to nails, it looks like apple cider vinegar is good for everything.

It looks like citrus fruits are really good for yellowing nails. The good thing about oranges is, you get to eat the fruit and put the peel to use. Once you’ve enjoyed the orange, use the peel on your nails to rub out the yellow. A great plus is that your nails smell yummy!

Baking Soda

This handy ingredient is good for nails that refuse to look decent. Or like you threw a packet of turmeric on them. Basically, baking soda acts like an exfoliant in this case. Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with one tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Put a paste of this on your nails, leave it on for a bit, then wash. This is really effective in the long run.

Besides treating burns, toothpaste can also help take care of drab looking yellow nails. The whitening properties of toothpaste can work their magic on nails. Just apply a small amount on the nail, let it sit, and then use a toothbrush to gently scrub it off. Say hello to shiny, healthy nails!
