White Spots on Your Fingernails

Ever wonder what those pesky little white spots are on your fingernails? According to SallyHansen.com "Leukonychia, the presence of white spots on the nail surface, is very common. It's often caused by a mild trauma to the nail." White spots can also be from a lot of calcium intake. Never try to buff these spots off as this can lead to brittle nails.
