  • I was going to say exactly what MoM81879 said.

  • I was always told it was lack of calcium. Now I think it’s more damage to your nails, it will fix itself

  • they are bruises

  • I have thought it was low calcium intake also.

  • I think they used to say it was a lack of calcium, but I’m not 100% sure. It could be an old wives myth. Google is brilliant fir this type of information

  • they are just bruises – no need to stress. They will grow out x

  • I heard they are bruises – will watch this post with interest

  • isn’t it a lack of calcium?

  • I thought it was low calcium?

  • It can vary; sometimes diet; sometimes nail growth; sometimes damage; best to get checked with your GP if you are concerned.

  • I have them too actually, I’ve never really thought about it

  • I got told it’s lack of vitamins ,could try multi vitamins

  • there are some good comments here

  • Possibly damaged the nail while still under the skin, with a blunt object or in the door.

  • Its a bruise …. you have knocked your finger on something they just grow out
