pink lunulae

Is there a normal colour for your lunulae or do they differ from person to person? Mine seemed to be pink more than white - is this normal?

Re: pink lunulae

It may be 'normal' for you. Depending on the amount of nail plate cells that are produced in the matrix, the nail plate may be thicker or thinner. If your natural nail plate is fairly thin, you will see more pink because the blood in the nail bed will show through as more pink. If your nails are thicker, then they will be a bit more white. The thicker the natural nail plate, the less translucent it will be.
