If you like nail polish at all and you use it incessantly, you will get yellow nails. No amount of base coat will protect them from getting stained, but it doesn’t matter because that’s what it is. A Stain. Like most stains, they can be removed but if you continue using nail polish, it’s moot.
If you do care about having white nails though, you can try this:
Take some whitening toothpaste and brush your nails for 1 – 2 minutes and you will get a whiter tone. It’s not magic though, don’t expect the stains to be fully gone, but it will lighten the nails a bit.
Surprisingly, I used to use liquid latex every time I used stamps until I figured out I didn’t need to. The way to clean up a stamper head is to roll it over some tape or to use a lint roller. Well, it turns out, you can also clean around your cuticles that way!
Liquid latex is something you apply on your body and you can paint over it once it’s dry. The benefit is that when it’s dry you can just peel it off and it doesn’t stain your skin.
People use this product on special effects make up but it has taken more popularity recently by nail artists to help them clean up around their nails easier and not use that much acetone which dries your skin.
Do I need the really expensive kind?
Do I need a special brush or bottle for it?
No. You can buy a jar from Amazon (link here) and you can fill out an empty bottle of nail polish and use that, which is what I use.
Does color affect the effect? (ha)
No. All liquid latex products work the same regardless of the color.
Which one do you use?
I use the Ammonia Free Liquid Latex Body Paint – 4oz Fluorescent Pink from Amazon. It was around $7 when I bought it and have used it so many times and still have more than half the bottle.
