Nail Stains

A kind commenter said that my nails don't look stained in the photo of my near bare nails I posted, yesterday. They are stained. I think that they benefited from the lighting and my less than stellar photography skillz. ;) lol

My nails are less stained than they used to be. And, call me crazy but I think it was because of a nail polish. Let me 'splain: One day I decided to try water marbling. (Hahahahaha!!!) And in preparation, I decided to lay down a nice, smooth base of white. I applied a coat of my usual base coat (China Glaze Strong Adhesion) and three coats of Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in White Out!. I let it dry then tried to water marble.

I won't bore you with describing that disaster. lol But, the funny thing is, when I cleaned all the polish off my nails, they were cleaner and a good bit less stained than they were, when I began painting that day.

Was it the white polish? Did it somehow leach some of the stain from the surface of my nails? I don't know. I just know that is what happened. And now my nails are not as badly stained as they used to be.

Crazy, huh?


  1. Hmm.. That's odd! But great outcome!

  2. Odd is right. lol I don't know if it was a fluke or something that works.
