In a less common variety of toenail fungus, called white superficial onychomycosis, the nail turns white rather than yellow or brown, and the surface becomes soft, dry and powdery.
Brittle, soft, shiny nails without a moon may indicate an overactive thyroid known as hyperthyroidism.
It can be confirm by concerning your doctor please consult
