Click on the Material Room to open it up. Make certain you have your FIGURE selected and use the dropdown to choose the 'fingernails'

A new little window opens up and what you need to do is add a new node. This is simple! Go down to the Alternate_Specular line and click on the icon. Then another small window opens up ~ Choose NEW NODE ~ LIGHTING ~ SPECULAR ~ ANISOTROPIC

Step 4 - See Your New Node?

Now you'll see that you have a new node, connected to the Alternate_Specular. I normally dont change any of the settings here, but play with it and even change the color of you want, for nifty effects.
