You must have noticed a white semicircle like formation on the fingernails also known as half moon and often wondered, does it have any significance?
The short answer is yes, and its meaning changes depending on which finger it is found.
It can be spotted on all the fingers, some of them or only on a specific fingernail.
Nail Structure anatomy
The pinkish portion on the fingernail is known as nail plate and its color is derived from the blood vessels situated below it.
That is one of the reasons why nails are used as a barometer for determining the health and personality of the person.
The free edge of the nail is the white portion that extends beyond the fingertip which is made up of dead cells.
Cuticle is a layer of colorless skin below which is the nail fold(black color).It covers the roots of your nail.
This is the structure of a nail and the lunula which means “half moon” found on the nails holds a special importance in the palmistry.
Let’s see the effect of half moon present on different fingers and its interpretations.
