large white patch on toenail (Marti?)

I've recently developed a problem with the nail on my big toe. I polished my toe nails and a large white patch appeared on the nail that could be scraped off. I removed the polish and started putting vitamin E oil or Neosporin on it and it seemed to go back to normal. So, I tried putting a coat of clear polish on. Within a day or so, I started to see a white spot appearing again so I quickly removed the polish. Any ideas what this could be?
On another note (and perhaps totally unrelated) I have been treating a plantar wart on the bottom of the same toe. It seems unlikely that it is related but thought I'd mention it just in case.
Thanks for your help.

The nail plate layers could be separating for some reason, or your shoes are pressing down on the toenail.
