Nail polish is a low-cost and quick way to change your look. Because of this, women tend to wear nail polish often and for long periods of time. Sometimes, pigments in the nail polish can cause nails to become discolored, stained and yellow. Prolonged use can also make this a relatively common occurrence. Yellow, discolored nails are unsightly and annoying, especially if you do not want to cover them up with colored nail polish. Luckily, discolored nails can be fixed cheaply and easily using one or more methods.
