Finger nails can yellow for several reasons including things like, fungus, smoking, dying hair, painting and most commonly wearing nail polish constantly, due to lack of oxygen on the nail.
A tip to lighten that yellowing is getting gauze pads and soaking them in peroxide. Then take the gauze and wrap 1 pad around each finger and leaving them on for about 15-20 minutes. This is good for the nail because of its antibacterial properties and bleaching abilities.
This will give a bleaching effect to the nail that will continue well after removing the gauze, which is more noticeable the next day. The nails can be painted over after the treatment, the treatment just provides health benefits to the nail and nail bed.
If you have major yellowing of the nails, talk to your doctor about nail fungi, and medical support for it.
