White Nails To whiten your nails, try these: * Use a common whitening toothpaste. Try scrubbing your nails with Pearl Drops, it's just as easy as achieving a pearly white smile and will take away any stains and shine up your nails. * Soak your nails in water with lemon juice or lemon slices. The lemon acts as an astringent and will strip away stains. Once your hands are dry, you'll only need to put on a couple of coats of a clear topcoat. White nails - While getting a manicure, soak nails in warm soapy water with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. This will whiten your nails and get rid of the yellow stains. Milk Manicure - To make hands softer, put them in whole milk for five to ten minutes before beginning your manicure. Split Nails - To avoid nails splitting, always use a moisturizer after washing your hands, and try taking some vitamins to make the nails stronger. Nail Fungus - To avoid nail fungus always use an anti-bacterial soap to clean your manicure tools and if possible take your tools with you when you are going to get a professional manicure. Discolored nails - Whiten your nails by mixing 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide with 3 tablespoons baking soda. Apply to nails (underneath and over tops) with a cotton swab. Leave on for 3-5 minutes then rise with warm water. Apply hand moisturizer. Or, dissolve a tablet of denture cleanser in warm water and soak fingers until the stains disappear. Help for nails that won't grow. Mix 1 packet unflavored gelatin with 1 tablespoon almond oil. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
