Patient : I'm 18 and I am on birth control I'm taking the pill and I'm concerned that maybe my fingernails turning orange could be a side effect. I've only taken the pill for 2 weeks now and my nails have been orange a week and a half, I've heard that fingernail polish could cause it but I haven't worn any. All the nails on my right hand are orange and I think the ones on my left are changing too. What do you think it could be?? I'm concerned..
