Nail Cleaning?

Post by guitarist_le » Sat Feb 16, 2019 6:21 pm

Mainly wanted to ask what you guys use to clean your nails and to keep them clean? I've been using lime juice, but I'm afraid that will weaken my nails and I haven't really noticed a difference. Mine are kind of yellow and I wanna change that.

Nails are like teeth: unless you're doing something to make them yellow (something occupation-related?) they may not be naturally very white. But if the cosmetic aspect really bothers you, go to a drugstore and look in the section for nail care. Most will carry a white pencil which is meant to run under the tips of nails to whiten them.
