Signs You May Have Eggshell Nails (& What To Do About It)

Nails Have A Blueish Tint
If you have eggshell nails, then your nails will likely have a bluish tint or be discolored slightly. If you notice discoloration or your nails are more transparent than usual, you should consult a doctor for confirmation.
Individuals with this condition often experience flaky and split nails, particularly at the ends, hence the name "eggshell." In addition, your nails may feel weak and thin, which may cause them to snap and break more easily.
Prevent eggshell nails by avoiding harsh chemicals and by wearing gloves to protect your nails. Don’t submerge your nails in water for long periods of time, and consider using cold water instead of hot.
