If in the summer we love colorful nail polish which fits to our summer outfits, in the autumn is time to return to a more sober style fitted with the atmosphere. And because the transition from warm to dark colors should not be all at once, french manicure is particularly suited for this period. What do we do when we cannot have it.
Certainly , at least once , it happened to want a flawless French manicure and you didn’t have it because of the yellow nails. Do not worry !
Yellow nails are not necessarily a sign of a skin or nail disease , but is simply a result of repeated use of nail polish , no matter how expensive and full of quality it is. The good part of this is that it is not necessary to wait until your nails grow in order to get rid of the yellow part.
