How to get stains out of gel nails?

Girliest question I've ever asked but I ate a sh*tload of chicken that had turmeric powder on it and now my nails are an unsightly neon piss yellow. I'm too cheap to redo them. Plzhalp.
Updates:
Lmao I love how all the men are coming to my shellac gel manicure rescue.

    • Ok I fixed it with the weirdest unexpected solution. I was opening a plastic bag of lettuce to feed my bunny and a bunch of the blue ink on the plastic got on my nails. I thought I destroyed them even further but when I washed it off the yellow was magically gone.

    • Kind of like using a non permanent marker to overwrite/erase a permanent one? Interesting lol. Well, at least now I have closure and can G@G elsewhere in peace

  • I think rubbing alcohol may work if you put it on a cotton swab and wipe it off. Try it first on a small patch that you would not mind getting more messed up then it already is.

    Good luck. :)

  • Lemon juice bro. Soak in lemon juice.

    Or just paint over them.

    Or wear mittens every day for the rest of your life.

  • I'm no chemist and especially not a female or an nail expert...

    But I would say try cleaning them with warm water and baking soda... if not then I don't know

  • no idea what gel nails are but ill assume they are a gel so ether adding something that will get rid of the powder you split or digging it out (gel isn't solid in my experience)

    • Fake nails with nailpolish basically

    • there's ways of cleaning your actual nails, with lemon juice then hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda. But likely anything that will clean them will also remove the nail adhesive.

  • Bleach? or is that not safe?
    I'm not that good with chemicals.

  • If peroxide doesn't work then I'd just paint over them then when you go for an infill they can file the stains out and relay
