Why my nails are always painted.

I was trying to describe to my sister what nail beds look like when they have psoriasis.  My thumb picture is a generally healthy nail bed with the pink (nail bed) and white (nail growth) is fairly smooth and straight across the nail. The pinky picture is my worst psoriatic nail. You can see the bed has detached more than halfway down the nail and the line between nail bed and nail growth is  very jagged and uneven.
