Heart Health & Fingernails?

Does anyone if there is any correlation between fingernails and heart disease? A few years ago my fingernails became very weak, and are now prone to splitting -- top to bottom. Not all of them but 2 or 3. I attributed this change to an illness I struggled with for nearly a year and a whole ton of meds I had to take. The illness was followed by a minor surgery -- and more meds!
According to my mother, weakened and splitting fingernails are an indicator of heart disease? Is this true?
I am 43yo, fairly active and in good health otherwise.
Any advice would be appreciated?
