  • Did you tan? Tanning will turn the nails yellow, as will chlorine, I think. That is why I don't do the french tips anymore. It's not very attractive once you tan.

  • If you tan at a tanning salon it could be from the ultra violet rays or they could be getting some type of yellow color from foods or lotion products you may be using. I would go back to the salon and see what they can do for you and I wouldn't go back to them..they may just use cheap supplies at their nail salon.

  • Are you tanning? UV rays can yellow nails,, fungus is more a brown-yellow-green,,, Also if you are going to a discount nail place the stuff they use is really harsh on your nails (thus the masks) they don't even want to breathe the fumes! I am a hairstylist and here is a list of safe and good acrylic products ask the salon if they use the following, if not find a new salon-
    OPI
    Tammy Taylor
    Creative Nail
    NSI
    all of these WILL not yellow and are safe! Good luck!

  • it's probably not fungus- is that what you meant?
    it could be from the sun that kind of thing...did they put a UV coat on them to protect them from that?

  • MMA is BAD...do the people that do them wear masks? if they do - I would honestly go somewhere else
    I would ask what product they are using (not that they all use that stuff, but beware of asian shops-when I was in school the instructor told us about the fact that they use MMA -it's cheaper . They had a gril who went to the school (for the nail tech course) and she refused to use the product at the school- she insisted on using her own...she ended up quitting -they wouldnt let her use it-it's illegal)
