My acrylic nails turn yellow by the time they are ready for a fill. how can i prevent this?

asked
I use a clear acrylic powder--would it be better to use a sheer pink to minimize the yellowing? What's a good sheer pink powder?

You are probably getting the discoloration from the top coat night being right for you? Do you by chance go to the tanning bed? That usually may cause some of the discoloring too. But if you are in-between fills I would use a buffer to buff out the color and try a UV protectant top coat after.

It's the pigments in the darker powders & polishes that are discoloring your fingernails. Definitely switch over to a lighter color. I would suggest buying a box of denture tablets and dissolving a few in warm water. Then soak your nails in the solution for ten minutes everyday, until they turn white again. Denture tablets whiten & brighten dentures and they will do the same for your nails.
