I would say D, cause of green color + atherosclerosis due to HTN made her more vulnerable

I would say D,Because of the discoloration. But couldnt it also be a reaction to the fake nails, maybe the adhesive glue she used or her nail polish??? Could this just be a simple reaction her body had???

Go with C. Onychomicosis as a warning sign of peripheral arterial disease, re: hypertension
