Stained Nails?

In my last post I did a St. Patrick's Day nail design but before putting the on polish I forgot to use a nail base. BIG MISTAKE!! Today I removed the nail polish and guess what? My nails were really yellow and disgusting. I googled online how to remove or at least lighten the yellow stains. I came across one that only required 3 items and this is what you'll need (what I used)

Nail Buffer
1 small bowl/container
2 lemons
Toothpaste (since most are used for whitening)
Using the file pictured I use the file and smoother for all my nails.
Then I poured some water as warm as I could handle into the bowl. 
Squeeze one lemon into the bowl and then soaked my hand for about 7-10 minutes. 
I then washed my hands with warm water and then repeated the steps again but this time added some toothpaste to it all and soaked again for 7-10 mins. Washed my hands again, filed and smoothed my nails and then put some lotion on. Now my nails are still a bit stained but not as bad as they were when the polish was removed. 



Another picture to show you its not that bad.

Were you able to see the difference?
