Dear Sally
Blue fingernails could be a sign of lung or heart disease (because the circulation of the blood is not what it should be at the extremities), or due to disease of the arteries in the hands ( Raynaud syndrome) Please let your doctor examine you to see if he can find a reason for this symptom.
