What happens when your fingernails change color?

What happens when your fingernails change color? My fingernails have white half moons on both of my thumbs from the cuticle. What can that mean?

Re: What happens when your fingernails change color?

The white half-moon at the base of the nail is the leading edge of the Matrix where the nail plate cells are born. It is quite ormal.
