In brief: Leuconychia
White spots under the nails or leuconychia, is not a serious condition and not due to lack of vitamins and minerals.
It may be caused by trauma to the matrix of the nail and more common in finger nails than in toe nails, rarely they may be caused allergic reaction to nail polish or nail hardners.There is no treatment for it.
