Gel nails turning yellow after a few days

Question by Guest | 20.11.2014 at 16:36

I hope that someone can help me. I really do not know why, but for some reason, with time my gel nails are turning yellow more and more.

After I was in the nail studio and I have just made my nails fresh, they are still looking nice. But after some days, the fingernails are always becoming more and more yellow and discolored. It primarily affects the white space in the front of my French nails, the area that should be white and not yellowed.

What can I do that the white color is remaining? It looks terrible now!

There are several reasons imaginable making your gel nails turning yellow:

  • Cheap Gel: The main reason for such discoloration usually is a bad and cheap gel that takes dirt and that is not comfortable with light. Who wants to have fun with nails, should not save at this point.
  • Tanning Salon: Some gels can not tolerate the light in the solarium. Remedy is a special sun gel or varnishing the nails before going under the sun.
  • Smoking: Typical yellow fingers of smokers. In some way, transparent nail polish may help which should be renewed every few days. Or better: Quit smoking at all.
  • Incompatible Materials: Sometimes gel gets stained because of working with fabrics that are not tolerated by the gel (for example, cleaning agents or hair coloring). 

I hope I could help you a bit.

In past, I often had problems with discoloration of my nails.

I got the tip to just include some glitter into the nails. With this, the yellow color is hardly noticeable.

I am experiencing the same thing. The polish is turning yellow, sometimes after a week, now I noticed it as soon the manicure was done. I am not a smoker, nor do I use harsh chemicals. I could see the difference right at the salon.

Same happens to me. I swear it's because I wear a lot of black clothes. I've ruled out just about everything else... Jeans too I think.

Mine did this. Pop them back under a led or uv light. They went back to close to normal. You want to put under a light till they get warm. Makes no sense but there's no explanation i can come up with just a solution. I've used different gels, primers and such. I even used a gel Polish that turned funky yellow. Try popping back under a light and let it heat up.

I'm also going to try nsi aitshield. It makes no sense to me. 8 hours after i used my gel as a top coat one hand turned really yellow. I did nails and went to bed so nothing touched them. I'm trying a top coat of airshield to see if it stops the yellow otherwise I'll need to use one of my pink top coats to make them look better.
