  • My Granny use to tell me, it was the lies I told. The bigger the white mark, the bigger the lie.

    But, honestly, I have no clue what they are...bump

  • Sister went through cosmotology school, and part of her training was to look at a person's nails and determine what was going on in the body.

    The majority of bumps, ridges, spots have to do with nutrition--or lack thereof.
