Discoloration of nails and brittle nails can be caused by several factors below:
Fungal infections of the nails
A history of injury to the nail
Other medical conditions, such as psoriasis
To ascertain the cause requires a direct examination yes. Therefore, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that you can be sure of the cause of your nail disease so you can get a more appropriate treatment. Handling will be adjusted to the cause, can be with drugs (for example, anti-fungal drugs), to pull the nails.
While waiting to see a doctor, you should not use nail polish for a while, keep your nails not too long but also don't cut them too short, and use personal nail clippers and don't alternate nail clippers with other people.
Hope it helps you,
