NOTD- ChG Ten Man **warning, naked nails included!*

So much for getting sun light pictures!  It has been gloomy all day here.  The best I can show you is some natural light pics and some pics under the lamp.

This is 3 coats of Ten Man, and I still see VNL, so you may want to layer it over a nude or white polish. (Neither of which are in my stash...)  I was afraid this would make me look dead, but I liked it!

under my lamp

Then, I got the idea to put PI Heartbreaker over it.  In my head, it sounded very pretty, but on the nail, meh.  It is barely noticeable after 3 coats- just gives Ten Man a pale green tinge to it.

Please excuse the color of my hands, this is in my kitchen, but it was the most color accurate of the polish.

WARNING!!  Naked nails ahead!!

My nails are stained yellow, and I am not sure why.  I use base coat under everything....  any recommendations on how to fix them?

Until later,

Once a week, remove the polish and scrub your nails with some whitening toothpaste, then rinse. Slice a lemon in half and dig your fingernails into the juicy parts. swish 'em around some and let the juice stay on your nails for a few minutes. Rinse. Reapply your polishes. I read somewhere that some base coats cause yellowing, but cannot remember which right now...

I will try that, thanks! I am not too concerned, I never leave the house without polish, but it looks icky...
