After working in the garden and lawn, picking berries, etc., this is a good thing to know as my nails are stained. Thanks

useful, but is drying

Works very well on toenails as well if used twice daily until desired you have desired whitening effect. If this fails go to beauty supply store and by peroxide lotion/cream for hair in lowest concentration and use very small eyeliner brush to apply to toe nails or very dark fingernails. Hope this helps those with very discolored nails.

I have tried bleach to whiten my nails, it works but is so harsh and drying. I will try this as soon as I remove my polish. Thanks for the tips!

Is that application on the whole nail, the nail tips or underneath long nails? Thanks for the article.
