COLOR: Blue Nails If your natural nails are blue-ish, they're telling you they can't breathe. Your body may be having a hard time delivering enough oxygen where it needs to go. According to Steele, blue discoloration of the fingertips is associated with poor oxygenation and vasospasm, a condition where the blood vessels constrict and decrease blood flow in the body. In some cases, this is associated with autoimmune diseases, or with Porphyria, a rare disorder that some individuals are born with. However, some people naturally have slower or poor blood circulation (especially those who live in colder climates). If your nails are persistently blue, have a physician check your blood and oxygenation levels to see if something more serious is up.
