Tis the season for showing off that perfect pedicure, and having a bright and colourful manicure!
Of course, I have had this problem and probably every other woman on this planet has too.
What to do when your constant nail polish wearing causes stains on your nails?!
A super easy DIY cure below:
-1 tablespoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon olive oil
-A few squeezes of lemon juice
Measurements are approximate—combine the wet/dry until you’re happy with the consistency.
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl or cup (warning: the lemon and baking soda will have a small volcano-like reaction, but it’ll settle down quickly! I had a minor heart attack. Try to avoid this haha.). Rub the mixture onto your nails (try using a soft toothbrush on your nails). Let the mixture sit for a few minutes and simply wash off with warm water.
How does it work, you ask?
Baking soda acts as an exfoliant while the lemon juice is a natural acidic lightener. Remember the days of putting lemon on your hair to lighten it in the summer? Same idea. Olive oil is a foolproof beauty cure-all and will bring much-needed moisture back into your nails and cuticles.
Let's get started on your next colorful manicure. Bright orange polish, anyone?
