Many nail polish brands contain the adhesive nitrocellulose, which can turn the fingernail yellow when exposed to sunlight. One way to avoid the fingernail turning yellow is to apply a topcoat that contains cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB) over your nail polish. This will prevent your nails from discoloration.
A few of my favorite products to prevent yellowing of the fingernails are: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, Orly Sunscreen for Nails and Essie Nonyellowing Topcoat.
A fast fix for fingernails that have yellowed or have been stained is, use a teeth whitening strip applied to the nail or mix two tablespoons of lemon juice in a cup of warm water, soak for five minutes and wipe vigorously with a soft cloth.
