  1. : a) what in the polish causes it: b) is there a way to prevent it? a certain kind of polish? a base coat”: c) how do i get rid of it!!Hi,I had the same problem with my finger and toe nails. I asked my manicurist about it and she said it was from the nail polish I use. She recommended using lemon juice to remove the yellowing and also to use a good basecoat before applying your top coat. I have tried this but, I have better results if I buff my nails first with a medium and then soft emery board. Then I apply the lemon juice with a nail brush and scrub them. If I use a good base coat (OPI brand works for me)that seems to help to stop the yellowing from returning, but it still happens sometimes when I wear red nail polish for a long period of time.Hope this helps,Elizabeth
