Seems my fingernails constantly look dirty, no matter what I do. Clean with a nail brush daily, soak in a mixture of peroxide, water, a few drops of shampoo, then cbrub, this used to work but not lately.

I read somewhere you could use lemon juice, how?

Toothpaste does the job for me. Put it on a brush and brush your nails.

Also wearing nail polish for too long can discolor your nails also.

Try to go without nail polish for a while. Your nails should turn a pretty white, clear color in a month.

And always trim your nails 1 time a week and toenails every 2 weeks to keep them healthy looking.

Just soak them in real lemon juice...then wash. Diluted bleach also works.
