Beliefs and signs associated with nails.
One of the beliefs concerns the shape of the nails of the person.
So, if the natural shape of the nail plate is oval, the signs say that this is a family person; the main value for him is the health of his loved ones, peace and comfort in the house. According to the sign, such a person is distinguished by restraint, wisdom and calmness. But, unfortunately, excessive softness often interferes in life, it is necessary at least sometimes to learn how to say “no” to people. No need to sacrifice yourself for the sake of satisfying the interests of others.
Careerists and real fans of their business are people with square nails. For them, there is nothing insurmountable. If suddenly there is a choice between marriage and promotion, such people will choose the second option without hesitation. The square shape of the nails speaks of such character traits as assertiveness, self-confidence, the desire to go to the end. But such people need to remember that in life there will definitely come a moment when you want simple human happiness, and there will be no one to share it with.
The pointed shape of the nail plate usually belongs to creative people. You must have some kind of talent. Perhaps you draw beautifully or play a musical instrument masterfully. Such people rarely care about tomorrow and the fate of mankind through the centuries. They live one day, enjoying the moment here and now.
If your nails are growing very fast, there is a sign that suggests that it is time for you to narrow your social circle. Probably, there are too many people whom you consider friends in your environment. It must be remembered that there can not be many good friends.
If, on the contrary, the nails grow for an extremely long time, this phenomenon has been noticed in lonely and self-contained people. You need to try to relax; it is not at all necessary to become the soul of the company, just a couple of people with whom you can talk heart to heart.
Attention! Long nail growth can be caused by a deficiency of vitamins and minerals in the body. Contact a specialist for treatment.
Hard nails speak of a similar character of its owner. It is very difficult to convince such a person or inspire him with your point of view. These are the people who go ahead, wanting to achieve their goals.
There is a sign that says that if the nails change their shape during a person's life, this means that a period has come for large-scale changes in life. Perhaps we are talking about moving to another city, a radical change in professional activity, the birth of another child.

A broken nail brings a lot of trouble to its owner. Signs assure us that nails break for a reason.
So, if you broke a nail on the eve of an important solemn event, be sure that a broken nail is not the biggest problem that arose during the holiday.
Pay attention to exactly where the nail is cracking. If the crack occurred vertically in the center of the nail plate, this means an imminent separation from a loved one; if the nail breaks horizontally, this means separation is expected from friends.
If the nail breaks at the base, be prepared for extremely unexpected news. They don't have to be negative, but even good news can shock you.

White spots on nails meaning.
Sometimes small blotches can be seen on the nail plate; most often they have a rounded or oblong shape. The color varies from white to pale pink. There are a number of signs and superstitions regarding white spots on the nails.
In the old days, it was believed that when a young girl had such spots on her nails, it meant improvements in her personal life. If a girl is single, the signs say that she will definitely meet her fate. And if the girl already has a partner, their relationship should move to a new level.
If spots appear at the base of the nail, this means a coming meeting with a loved one; spots in the center - good news; if they are randomly located throughout the nail plate - failure.
The sign advises to beware if white spots appear on all nails, except on the index finger. Usually this indicates an approaching illness.
The retreat of the disease is foreshadowed by three white spots on the nail of the thumb.
Less often, blotches appear on the little finger. But if you noticed them there, it's time to buy a lottery ticket or enter into a profitable dispute, you will certainly be very lucky.
If oblong white stripes appear on the middle fingers, this means you should carefully monitor your speech, and not say too much; do not discuss your colleagues and boss.
Important! White spots usually disappear within a week. If the inclusions on your nails are regular, you should contact a specialist. This may indicate problems of the gastrointestinal tract.
