Question:

Does water have to reach the skin under the nails as well as the underside of the nails

 Answer:

Bismillah

It is necessary to make sure water reaches the skin for wudhu. If the area of a fingernail remains dry in any one of the four washable parts of wudhu, the wudhu will be considered incomplete. (Qadi Thanaullah Panipatti in Mala Budda Minhu p.33)
