    you have damaged the nail that was showing on both thumbs in some way...one way is by repeatedly rubbing your thmbnails with your index fingernail...or you may have a job where pressure is being put on the pads of both thumbs or on the tops of both thumbnails continuously...either way the pressure on the exisitng nail you see affects the nail that is continually growing from the inside of your thumb that you cannot see
    it doesnt hurt but if it continues it could turn the nail yellow,brittle and could split the nail and if that happens then bacteria can get into your thumb through the cuticle...then you have a problem
    find our what pressure is being put onto your thumbnails and see if you can alleviate it
    good luck!!! D.W.L!!! love to you, barbara b
