How may separation occur in your nails if you have nail psoriasis?

ANSWER

Your nail may loosen or separate from the nail bed.

Some of these nail changes can make it hard to move your fingers and toes. You may also get tenderness and pain in your nails. This can make it hard to do things with your hands.
