For the past few years, about once a year, I've been getting horizontal ridges in my big toe nails. At first I thought it was just due to extreme cold, because for a couple winters we didn't have heat. But the ridges have come back again. I'm assuming it's a vitamin deficiency, but I'm not sure what. Anytime I've had blood work done I've been told everything looks fine - except once several back when my vitamin D looked low. That was back when I had fewer vitamin D fortified things in my diet. I have a healthy vegan diet, and the supplements I take regularly are: B complex, calcium and magnesium (not the full dose, though), iron, and DHA/EPA. I've just bought some vegan D2 supplements from Vega, thinking maybe the fortified soy milk isn't enough.

Any suggestions for what might be causing the ridges?

It can also be caused by a thyroid disorder. Or just by aging - I'm not sure how suddenly the ridges appear when aging is the cause though.
