This carrier oil is known for its antifungal properties and is great for keeping nails clean and healthy. Dab some tea tree oil on cotton swabs and apply it to your nails once a day for a week for best results.

Lemon juice + baking powder
If over-applying nail paints have turned your nails yellow, skip the salon appointment and get your nails white at home! Make a thin paste with juice from a lemon and a dash of baking soda and scrub your nails thoroughly with this mixture. Leave on for 10 minutes before washing off for best results.

Coconut oil
Coconut oil is the remedy for skin and body problems and is known for keeping cuticles and nails healthy. Massage your nails with the oil for stronger and healthier nails over time.

The garlic cloves contain antifungal and antibacterial properties that can keep fungus off your feet. If your toes are prone to infection or are infected, crush some cloves of garlic to form a paste and apply it to the area until it heals.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix equal parts apple cider vinegar and water to form a solution. Soak your nails in it or use a cotton swab to apply it to your nails if they break easily or have turned yellow. This will keep them clean, shiny and brought back to life.
