  • If you mean the nails...they are probably eggshell nails
    Eggshell Nails
    Are thin, white, and curved over the free edge. The condition is caused by improper diet, internal disease, medication, or nervous disorders. Be careful when manicuring these nails because they are fragile and break easily.


    My son's toenails are eggshell...

  • Oh wow not sure. I've only ever seen older people that I used to take care of when I was a nurse have that, and it was arthritis.
