No I am not sick!

I was a uni last week and a girl who i was sitting next too in class asked if i was sick and pointed to my nails. I realised she was referring to my yellow tinged nails which happened from wearing Barry M nail paint in mint green the week before haha. The nail paint had stained them a terrible yellow colour which i must admit was quite gross and i should have painted over. I guess that's what happens when I'm too lazy to apply a base coat.

I have never had a nail polish stain my nails before this Barry M one. I had a look around on some other blogs and read a few reviews that said they stain, I must have never noticed them before. Has this happened to anyone before?

I don't know if you can tell that well in this picture but this is what my nails look like.

Note to self: Next time apply a base coat!


  1. My nails get like that too. Boo on me liking dark colors. People say lemon juice works, but I haven't tried it. I also hear from a gf that works in a beauty mag that tooth whitening strips work on your nails. Like you buy Crest Whitestrips and then cut them to fit your nails and the peroxide in it whitens them. I think that sounds like a really clever idea. Again, haven't tried it, but worth a shot! xoxo

  2. Thanks for the tips! The whitening strips sounds interesting, I think i will give it a try. Anything to get rid of the yellow!!

  3. My nails stain like that too sometimes but i dont see it as a problem because i ALWAYS wear polish so sooner than later ill have covered them up again with another pretty colour :) Not sure if Barry M is totally to blame, most brands will do that especially darker ones too x
