The changes in brittle, friable nails are often confined to the surface of the nail plate; this occurs in superficial white onychomycosis and may be seen after the application of nail polish or base coat which causes 'granulations' in the nail keratin. In advanced psoriasis and fungal infection the friability may extend throughout the entire nail.
