If your nails are stained after using dark colored nail polish, wipe away the nail polish using a nail polish remover.Then use a nail scrub brush to scrub off the stains from your nails. You can also soak a cotton pad in acetone to scrub your nails.

Use a soft brush to scrub nails gently with a whitening toothpaste containing hydrogen peroxide, Dr. Ian suggests. If that doesn’t work, mix three to four tablespoons hydrogen peroxide with one half cup warm water in a bowl, stirring well. Soak nails for two minutes, and then scrub.
