A chipped human nail

  • Gagandeep Singh

My sister has the habit of nail biting. I took a chip of her nail to look under the foldscope.  I was confused to see the type of cells. Was it deposition of keratin or something else? To have a clear view, I stained it with safranine.

I am sure after looking at these pictures she is going to leave this habit.
