In brief: Not particularly
There are many purported home remedies but a fungal nail infeciton requires oral anti-fungal medication.
First you need a proper diagnosis and then treatment. The teatment for finger nail fungus is the same as toe nail fungus only shorter. Many things mimic nail fungus and is not fungus. Bacterial infections can do this. See a dermatologist and get a proper diagnosis and proper treatment.

I really do not. As stated, I don't believe your fill find a home remedy.

In brief: Vinegar, bleach
Treatment for fingernail fungus is similar to toenail fungus: topical or oral antifungals, lasers.
Vinegar soaks, bleach, tea tree oil are home remedies.

In brief: No home remedies
Unfortunately, there are no home remedies that work.
The same things that treat toenail fungus will also treat nails on the hand.

In brief: Nail fungus
Any manner suitable for the toe would be suitable for a fingernail. Fingernail fungus is a little easier to treat as it is not subject to the dark, moist environment of a sock and shoe.
