A healthy blood supply to the nail produces a pinky healthy colour to the natural nail, if however there is deficiency of some sort or physical / mental stress it will show up within your body ie - nails.
*Vertical ridges or bumpy nails is usually iron deficiency, poor absorption of vitamins & nutrients.
*Ridges running horizontally across the nail indicates stress physical or mental.
Your nails are made of protein & will alert you to a lack in our diet, protein can be found in beans, nuts, oats, seeds, lean meat & eggs.
Calcium is important too with it your nails loose strength becoming brittle and brittle start eating more green leafy vegetables, diary produce, sesame seeds and you could try a daily supplement ie vitamins B / B12 / C.
Eat a well balanced diet Julie-Anne and take supplements and don't remain in that stress zone take time out for yourself and relax.
All the best Mya at 'Unwind' Milton Keynes.

its hard to say without being able to see but i can tell you that regular Manicures and a good homecare routine including daily use of cuticle oil and buffing a few times a week to help smooth out the nail plate and get rid of those bumps. Also drink plenty of water and ensure a healthy, well-balanced diet.
Medication, deydration, and illness can also be the cause of many nail disorders as well as genetic.
Hope this helps.
