Default What colour are healthy nail tips supposed to be? - 12-27-2008, 03:02 PM

My natural nails turn very white when they grow past the end of my finger - not beige or cream, but white. My sister said she heard that nail tips are supposed to be clear, and that white tips are a sign of an unhealthy nail. I cannot find anything online to back up what she's saying. Does anyone know for sure?

They should be white.. but can be a little transparent as well..I wouldn't worry.. your nails seem healthy if they grow longish.. and don't bend too easily...But remember calcium is what keeps your nails.. bones and teeth strong.

Alas the reason for the French manicure. It is ideal to have white tips and pretty too! As long as your nails are healthy and strong it could be calcium deposits..not harmful.
