    white nails after acrylics taken off

    After having used acrylic nails for 8 years, I had them removed a month ago. A few of them are splitting in the middle (top) and peeling, but I am using nailtek and jojoba oil on them. What is really bothering me is that some of them are 2/3 white, then red at the top, and some have some white at the bottom, sort of in a u shape, then red at the top. I have looked at information about nail color and this seems to indicate health problems. I was wondering if it could also be from damage the fake nails caused. Has anyone had this problem?

    seriously acrylic nails for 8 years? your damaging your nails. Leave your nails alone. You need to go see a dermatologist ASAP.
