Remove Stains On Fingers From Nail Polish

Nail polish can leave a yellow stain on nails after being removed.

Generally, when we paint our nails we want them to be the color we painted them, but we don't typically want them to be that color permanently. However, nail polish can stain your fingers and fingernails. To remove nail polish stains you will need to gather a few things from around your home, and you may need to try one or two different remedies to actually get rid of the stains for good.


1. Wash your hands and nails with hand soap and a nail brush. Rinse thoroughly under a stream of cold water and dry well with a soft washcloth.

2. Moisten a cotton ball with an acetone nail polish remover. Acetone nail polish remover is not recommended for everyday use because it can dry out your nails, but for nail stains, darker colors and brighter colors it tends to remove polish quicker. If possible, find an acetone nail polish remover that has added moisturizers that nourish the nail.

3. Wipe each nail and any stains on your fingers with the cotton ball moistened with nail polish remover. When a cotton ball becomes stained, throw it away and get a new cotton ball to use.

4. Wash your hands in soap and water after you have used the nail polish remover and cotton balls on all of the stains. Rinse your hands under a stream of cold water and dry completely with a washcloth.

5. Continue the stain removal process by applying whitening toothpaste to each stain with a paint brush. Let the toothpaste sit on the nails for 5 to 10 minutes.

6. Rinse the whitening toothpaste off and wash your hands with soap and water. Rinse the soap from your hands with cold water and dry your hands completely with a washcloth.

7. Buff your nails with an emery board.

8. Moisturize your hands with a hand lotion. Apply a nail conditioner to each nail.
