The white line is a raised portion of the nail bed rail. The nail plate rides forward on the nail bed by a series of rails and grooves much like a train rides forward on its tracks. the rails are on the nail bed and the grooves are on theunderside of the nail plate. When a rail gets enlarged due to age or from other natural causes. it will force itself up through the nail plate causing it to split into two portions. Sometimes, the rail will cut all the way through the nail plate and permanently split it in two.

You might try conditioning and moisturizing the nail plate with a good quality nail oil such as Solar Oil or Botanical Oil. I have these in my thumbnails as well due to age. the only way I can keep them is to wear an overlay of acrylic or gel on the effected nail.
