    white instead of pink fingernails

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone have whitish nails instead of a rich pink? My nails are firm and grow quickly and correctly, but the color seems off. Any input will be appreciated!

    Are they white all the time or do you notice it when you remove your nail polish? The reason I ask is that red nail polish, once removed, will make your nails look very white for a while.

    Hi Marie,

    I don't think I am. My last blood test was in November, and it came back clear. I will have another one this coming November, so we'll see!

    Hi cookiepls,

    Actually, I DO notice it more when I remove my polish, which was yesterday morning. I have polish on most of the time, and I'm thinking I should leave it off for a few days and see how my nails look. Thanks for your input!
