Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query and photograph.
These dark lines in nails are called as melanonychia.
These are totally normal and no treatment is required.
You can try Capsule Vitamin E 400 mg, daily one capsule for 2 months.
This should help ln lightening these nails.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
