Discolored nails? Well, there is something you can do about it.


Have you noticed that your nails are slightly unhealthy looking? You know, a little discolored? If this is your issue, then your nail discoloration may the result of one of these 3 things:

  • You have been wearing nail color for prolonged periods of time, and the chemicals have discolored your nails.
  • You have some health issues that need to be addressed.
  • You have  nail fungus.

If your nail discoloration is due to a medical issue, then please work with your physician to determine how to remedy your problem. However, if your issue is due to ‘to many mani/pedi(s)’, or a nail fungus, then what I share below may work to help you regain your natural nail color.

Lemon Juice

Take a lemon, cut it and apply it on your nails. You can use cotton to apply lemon juice on the nails, or simply rub lemon on the nails.


Pour some clear vinegar in a bowl and soak your nails in it.  (Apply vinegar to a ball of cotton and rub it across your toes.

Baking soda and Lemon Juice

Mix a tablespoon of baking soda and the juice of 2 lemons, and scrub your nails with the mixture. Then wash and moisturize your hands.

Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide

Mix about three tablespoons of baking soda with one tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Apply the paste on to your nails. Wash after about 10 minutes and moisturize.

Lemon Essential Oil

Pour lemon essential oil in a bowl and soak your nails in it. Keep them soaked for up to 10 minutes, and then massage the remaining oil into your cuticles.

Tea Tree Oil

Massage your fingernails with 2 drops of tea tree oil twice a day for about 30 days.  You may begin to notice a difference within 30 days.


Honey will prevent any fungal growth, which may also affect your nail’s color, thus preventing nail discoloration.
