Does my Lunula look big in this?
So my lunula are pretty big – I’ve had comments.
From my thumbs to my pinkies the light pink moons circle around the bottom of each nail. My thumbs are the largest by far and stretch approximately 1/3 up the nail bed.
Is this a problem (you may ask)? I asked, and found my answer on the ‘health’ pages of the internet. Some people have no moons. Some people have little moons. Some people have large moons.
Searching the internet produced a number of possible causes ranging from Overactive Thyroid and High Blood Pressure to Calcium Deficiency and Renal Failure!
However, rather than drag myself off to the knackers yard just yet there is one very important fact for me to remember – this is nothing new. If my lunula had suddenly become larger, discoloured or uneven I might start to worry but mine have always been big. More to the point so are the moons of all the women in my family. My mum, nan, sisters, aunties all have ample lunula. It’s a genetic trait passed down and NOT signs of a serious medical condition (as the internet would have me believe).
I personally have no qualms with lunula – large or small it’s all fine by me, but I just wondered what your thoughts are on the matter…
Do you have large lunula? Do you ever worry your nails don’t look ‘normal’? Do you find yourself stressing about nail health articles you read online?
