The fingernail acts like a protective shield over the tip of the fingernail and its sensitive nerve endings. You can get white spots on your fingernails anywhere along the nail. The nail root is the part near your cuticle curve where the new nail grows from. The nail plate is the part of the nail that you can see the most of; the curved length of the nail.
