High elevation?: Your symptoms don't sound classic for anything I can think of, but if you are living or visiting a region with high elevation, your body will make more blood cells to increase oxygenation. This could cause pink nails, but so could red or pink dyes, trauma, hemorrhage under the nail. If it doesn't go away soon, see your regular doctor for a work up.
