What do white spots on fingernails mean?
White Spots on fingernails usually mean an injury to the nail bed, however some people believe it's to do with a zinc or calcium deficiency, which is a myth because it's not just on our hands we grow nails. If you have White Spots on your Toenails as well as your Fingernails then maybe your needing a vitamin supplement. On Fingernails only then most likely cause is an injury. It could be the normal part of the nail called the lunula.

Asked in Polar Bears
Are polar bears all white?
No, their noses are black and so is their skin, if you shaved one, it would be black. They look white but their fur is not actually white. The hairs are the color of your fingernails since they are made of keratin which is also what fingernails are made of. They look white when the sun reflects from them. See the related question below about their unique fur.
