In brief: It's not just...

...The nails; the fingertips widen, and the nails curve around the fingertips.
It is caused by extra connective tissue that the body makes to compensate for the heart's inability to pump enough oxygen to the skin. But there are literally dozens of other kinds of nail abnormalities; if the appearance of your fingernails has changed, see a doctor; it might not be your heart at all.
