When the days of summer come upon us, the white shoes, white clothes, and even white nail polish get broken out to wear.
While we love the look of our white polish for a few days, it always happens. The white paint on the toe becomes yellow because our nails are getting dirt and other things on them that make the color change. Is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening?

HOW DO I KEEP MY WHITE NAIL POLISH FROM TURNING YELLOW?
1. Do not wear white polish if you don't have time to do a lot of hand washing. This is probably the biggest cause of nail polish turning yellow. Many times people wear white nail polish for events where they are going to be doing a lot of things with their hands, such as cooking or gardening, which means the polish is going to get dirty quickly.
2. Make sure when you wash your hands you use soap to wash them thoroughly because this will also make the nail color turn yellow and dull-looking since it contains chemicals and other dirt that can ruin your look.
2. WHY DOES MY WHITE NAIL POLISH TURN YELLOW?
There are two main reasons your white nail polish turns yellow:
1. The first reason is as it stated above, where you have dirty hands and the dirt gets on your nail polish, this will cause your nail polish to turn yellow.
2. The second reason is the pigments in the white nail polish get weak and when this happens it causes them to be easily oxidized by substances in the body, which causes them to change color.
DOES MY BASE COAT CAUSE YELLOWING?
Base coats are transparent protective coatings that go on top of your existing manicure to protect it. They typically range in color from white to various colors of the rainbow. Over time,
the polish will wear off and yellow (or other) discolorations will appear on the nail. This is a common occurrence with polish and usually nothing more than an aesthetic problem that can be solved with a different base coat color.
However, the latest addition to the base coat family is a new product called CND Shellac(TM). It is a revolutionary new gel-based (up to 14-day wear) "wax-free" manicure. The line of Shellac products, including the Base Coat,
claims to leave nails in better condition than they were before a manicure was applied. They claim that this is due to a unique wax-free formulation that forms a protective layer over the nail and extends the life of polish. The idea is that with the careful application (not too much) and proper care
(note carefully what you are doing, don't use too much or leave it on for too long) you can maintain your manicure for up to 14 days without a base coat or topcoat.
The theory may sound good, but is it true? Let's take a look at the science behind Shellac and base coats before we make our decision as to whether it works.
