    Are your fingernails yellow because of Cheetos, or because you've been petting too many bumble bees????

    Yellowing finger nails could be a fungus or a vitamin defiecency.

    After washing your hands with soap and water see if the nails look better. Smoking will also yellow nails.

    If you are sure that is what it is from, bleach them...and from now on wash them with soap and a nailbrush right after you eat! If that is not it, you may have some sort of problem internally. Go see a Dr.

    stop eating cheetos and eat cool ranch doritos!

    they are normal colored, could turn your fingernails back to normal

    Eat your cheetos with a spoon.

    a few things.....first try eating cheetos with gloves on....this should prevent and further staining....second put a little bleach in you water for dishes and use bare hands to wash....this should lighten or maybe diminish....finally if these two things don't help, you may want to see a doctor....perhaps its a severe condition such as a fungus or jaundice...good luck.

    there are lots of other causes to include smoking, fungal infections, repeated exposure to chemicals like bleach etc.

    could be the cheetos tho, especially the 'flamin hot' ones

    Stop eating cheetos fatty, or saw your fingers off.

    You could have a nail disease. Otherwise white vinegar soak and light brushing with pumice stone.

    eat cheetos with chopsticks
