Nails can provide valuable information regarding far more health concerns than you are probably aware of. Little bumps and differences in colours can tell you all about your physical condition. They may seem like a slight imperfection but may actually mean a whole lot more.
Half white nail beds like you have may suggest that your body is low in iron. This is the supplement that is commonly found in red meat which is important to maintain healthy blood cells which helps the immune system. It may also point towards kidney issues.
There are many other issues that the nails can highlight. People with heart disease may have redder nails than normal and people with obsessive compulsive disorders may have broken, bitten and picked at nails.
Even thyroid disease effects the nails and can cause issues out of the ordinary. It may produce dry and brittle nails. Yellow nails can mean emphysema and lung conditions.
Irregular lines at the base lines or folds can mean lupus, whereas dark lines beneath the nail can mean melanoma.
Pitting or ripping of the nails can be a sign of the skin disorder psoriasis, and yellowish nails with a blush at the base may hint at diabetes.
All of these diseases are hinted at from merely a nail colouration which is quite an amazing thing.
If you do end up with nail issues, then perhaps you should go see a dermatologist. If you have other considerations then perhaps go and see a doctor. They can determine whether the issue at hand is merely a minor problem or the sign of something a lot more serious.
Always check with a professional before you make any diagnosis yourself as you would not know. If you feel unwell then always go to a professional over someone who is not a registered medical professional.

The color of the free edge of nails and hardness of the nail plate is determined by the amount of inner material that is lost by the nail plate cells as they emerge from the matrix (the white half-moon at the base of the nail). With the growth of the nail plate, the source of the 'pink' coloration is lost and they tend to appear more white. The color of the nails vary from people to people. Where some have a very translucent free edge, some might have a more opaque free edge. This is not a problem at all, its just the genetic makeup that define the color of your nails.

As far as I know, this nail design is called ombré.

I decided to spend more time on the beauty and health of my skin, hair and nails. I also started going to various cosmetic procedures and manicures. I liked getting manicures, I really like the process. I love beautiful designs such as the one you mentioned ombre nails I always get manicure ideas from this website.

The white part is the area where the nail bed doesnt touch... The pink one is the nail bed, the bloody tissue in the center of the nail.
