Yellow nails

Good day,

My nails have a yellow undertone due to smoking. I have quit smoking for about a month now. Will my nails in future become less yellow?

Dear Friend
The yellow colour is caused by staining by the tobacco, so yes, as it grows out it will become less yellow. Congratulations with quitting the smoking habit - I know it is not easy!
