I used to buff my nails all the time instead of using nail polish. It works great, and it's a lot cheaper and longer lasting. It also makes your nail polish look much better if you do use it. I never tried using baking soda and lemon to whiten first but sounds like a great idea.

I really could have used it when I was working. My nails used to get so discoloured from doing food prep, I was constantly scrubbing with a brush but no matter how clean I got them they just never looked clean. I will have to try it on my toe nails too. They could do with some whitening. Thanks for the tip. :-)
