Question Dark lines under your fingernails

Why do these *dark* lines appear under your fingernails and how do you prevent/stop these lines from appearing?

Re: Dark lines under your fingernails

Which direction are the lines, parallel to the length of the nail or running across the width of nail?

Could be a vitamin B-12 deficiency.
