  • Vertical lines (nail bed to the tip of the nail) aren't much of a concern.

  • Ridges, colored lines, or white lines? And most importantly, horizontal or vertical lines?

  • up and down*so i get vertical?*
    and there not colored, no color at all really.*but if i had to say id say white* lines are really close together. if i had to guess id say there were atleast 50 per nail.

  • I have ridges in my nails, I think it's normal. Is this what you are talking about?
