No one wants yellow looking nails or artificial nails
that lift off after wearing them for a short time.
You can get yellow nails when nail products
that are used on your artificial nail
begin to break down. This can be the cause of using
products and materials. Another way to ensure that your
nails do not turn yellow is to use a base coat before
applying color polish.
To avoid yellow nails talk with your nail technician
about your concerns, she should be able to suggest quality
products that will not break down and turn yellow.
Yellow nails can also look that way from infection,
be sure that all instruments are sterile and that throw
away products are thrown away and not used on anyone
If you do your own nails, be sure to avoid yellow nails
by cleaning your instruments and keep the area clean
where you do your nails. Do not smoke around the area.
Smoking can cause the nails to turn yellow.
Yellow nails will not be a problem if you let your nail
technician know that most causes of yellowing are
from inadequate products or unsatisfactory application
of the products used to apply your artificial nails.
Let her know that you would prefer to pay a little more
for better quality products than go around with discolored
Yellow nails can also be avoided if you check out your
nail salon and be sure they use quality products. Before
choosing a nail salon and technician, watch how the salon
is operated. Are the workstations clean and free from
debris? Do they use quality products? Do they charge
less than other salons because they are in fact using
Infection is a cause of yellow nails and you want the
area clean, be sure that the technician is throwing away
any disposable products as soon as it is used on a client.
Instruments should also be sterilized before use on
their next customer. Nail infections can in fact be passed
from one person to another through dirty equipment.
When you do your own nails, ask your nail technician
which products to use to avoid yellow nails from happening.
Your local nail salon should be able to answer your questions
concerning yellow nails and which products are quality.
If they do not know then I think it is time to find a
new salon or nail technician that really know the products
they intend to use on your nails.
