(Ibn Seerin’s Dictionary of Dreams)
(Capture; Fingernails; Strength; Victory) Fingernails in a dream represent victory over one’s enemy. Having long fingernails for someone who needs them for his or her work in a dream means prosperity. Long fingernails in a dream also mean a trend that opposes what is common and practical. Long fingernails in a dream also mean strength, power and protection from one’s enemy. Long fingernails in a dream also denote shame. Losing one’s fingernails to a sickness in a dream means losing one’s wealth, or reaching a dead end. Clipping one’s fingernails in a dream means following the common norms, lending money, or collecting gold jewelry. White fingernails in a dream mean understanding, vigilance, or memorizing things. Fighting someone with nails in a dream represents a cunning person. Long and beautiful fingernails in a dream mean money, or business.
If the length of one’s fingernails reaches near breaking in a dream, it means losing to others what otherwise could remain under one’s own control, or it could denote the need to pay alms tax or to distribute charity.
Seeing one’s fingernails broken or chipped in a dream means loss of money, status or health.
If one’s fingernails become claws in a dream, it means that he will triumph over his enemy.
