Why are my nails yellow with nail polish?
Nail polish can sometimes cause nails to become yellow or discolored due to the pigments and chemicals used in the polish. The yellowing may also occur due to a reaction between the polish and the natural oils on your nails, or from prolonged exposure to the chemicals in the polish.
Unfortunately, if you frequently apply nail polish without allowing your nails to breathe, it can lead to discoloration and yellowing of the nails. To prevent the yellowing of your nails, it is important to let your nails breathe and take breaks from nail polish. You can also use a base coat to protect your nails from the pigment and chemicals in the polish.

If your nails are already yellow, try removing the polish and gently buffing your nails to remove any stains. You can also soak your nails in a mixture of lemon juice and water or hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to help remove the discoloration. If the discoloration persists or you have any concerns, it is best to consult a healthcare professional.
