I use Sally Hansen's clear polish called flawless. It makes my nails strong and long but the tips turn yellow. It really looks bad in the sun. Is there something else I can use that will be as effective with out the yellow?

Try soaking them (without nail polish) for five to ten minutes in lemon juice, every other day until you see an improvement. Also, give them a break from the polish every once in a while.

I know dark polish can make them yellow or orangey. I think Avon may carry some anti yellowing nail stuff. I have one called "nail experts pearl shine." It's pinkish in color. Seems to make my nails stronger too.

try going into a public beauty supply store (such as Sally's Beauty Supply if there's one in your area) and ask them if they have a nail bleach. its not harmfull to you or your nails, its made to bring the yellow staining off of your nails. I found this works really well with myself doing hair coloring at work and having my nails done with a french manicure, they always get stained with hair color....plus smoking cigarettes doesn't help much....but the nail bleach works wonders!! i have also heard that lemon water will help a little bit, but not as much as bleach.
