English term or phrase: stress line
From a brochure about nail care:
“The stress line is the dividing line between the pink colour of the nail bed and the white colour of the free edge.”

Ich denke eigentlich, dass Ihre Beschreibung nicht richtig ist: Ich denke, dass die 'stress line' die weiße Linie ist, die sich nach +/- ernster Krankheit von der Nagelwurzel aus langsam nach vorn verschiebt.
