For adults they grow (on average) about 0.02 inches a week (or almost half a millimetre). That works out to 2.3 cm (or 0.9 inches) per year. That's about the same pace that continents move, by the way.
If you're thinking that your nails definitely grow more than that -- you're probably right. Young people have faster-growing fingernails than oldies. Fingernails also grow more during the day, in summer, and among people who live in warmest and sunniest climates. Men have faster growing fingernails than women. Children have the fastest growing fingernails of all. In fact, a child under about 12 can lose the very tip of their finger, and the finger tip will grow back (nail and all).
The fingernails on the longest fingers (the middle fingers) grow fastest of all. Also, the more the hand is used the faster the nail grow (because of a better blood supply). Good health promotes faster fingernail growth.
Toenails grow between a quarter and half as much as fingernails.
If you rub some oilolive oil from your kitchen then they will grow within 3 days. Its works good
Rub lotion and olive oil on the cuticles every night and they should grow longer and stronger
Drink lots of milk and take a piece of garlic .and rub it on your nails it will work
I used to bite my nails, but then I decided to stopm when my nails are short, I tend the bite them because I can't file them properly, but when the are long and strong, I can't stand biting them ! I've been growing my nails for about a week I and I alread notice huge difference from doing nothing to rhem atal, but they are still not very long. Last night I put aloe vera on my nails and over night I can notice a difference ! Nobody else has mentioned it and its the fasted thing I've used so for that works ! I will also try all of your sugestions, thanks for your help :) ( another tip : If you are a nail biter, when you go to bite your nails, think of how nice they will look if they were healthy and long ! Also distract your self from biting them by drawing, tapping your fingers, or something related to nails ! Push back your cuticles, file or painr them ! )
Well I Just Soak Them In Warm Soapy Water For 1 Minute On Each Hand Then Soak Them In White Vinegar For About 2-3 Minutes On Each Hand Then Also Rub Olive Oil (Any Oil) On Each Finger Rub For About 15-20 Seconds Do This Every Morning And Every Night For About 5-7 Days and They Will Grow About 1.5-2cm Long Really Fast !!!GOOD LUCK!!!
Drink a lot a lot a lot of milk and foods with lots of vitamin d and calcium!
This is an interesting question and the answer is not as simple as one may think. It really depends on the age of the person and the finger that you are talking about. Typically, human fingernails grow at a rate of between one and ten centimeters per year, which is also the same rate of plate or continental motion, but that's another story. No two fingernails on your body grow at the same speed. The longer the finger, the faster the growth rate; for example, the thumb nail grows the slowest because it is the shortest and the middle finger grows the fastest because it is the longest. Also, the hand that is used more often is also the hand that houses the quickest pace. If you are left-handed, the fingernails on that hand generally grow a little faster.
Have you ever noticed that your toenails do not grow as fast as the nails on your fingers? Well they don't; fingernails grow almost four times faster than toenails. They also grow more quickly on younger people, during the daytime, and in the summer. A vast majority of animals have some type of nails whether it is a hoof or claw or what we would consider a normal fingernail in appearance. Fingernails are a necessary feature of our human anatomy and are not simply there to paint and trim. Without fingernails, simple tasks like grabbing or picking up items would be much more difficult for all species.
Rubbing the top of your finger where the nail grows from will make it grow faster due to increased blood supply
Well drumming your fingernails on a table or typing on a computer/laptop will help the blood supply move around the fingertips quicker. Also keep your nails in white vinegar for two minutes that will also help. Good luck.
The average growth rate for the nails in humans is 3 millimeters per month but this varies with the person and the rate is dependent on many things. This is because factors like weather, diet, age and general health affect the growth rate of nails. The growth rate is different for each nail, the smallest or the pinkie finger’s nail has the slowest rate while the second slowest are the thumb nails. The fastest growing nail is on the middle finger. In case, due to some accident you lose a finger nail, it will take almost 6 months to grow it back to the normal length. Nail growth is fast when we are young and it reaches a maximum rate between the ages of 10 to 14 but slows down gradually after that. It is enhanced during summers as compared to winters and poor blood circulation also causes the nails to grow slowly.
I had this cream you applied to grow nails and in two weeks they had grown about 1.5 in it worked really well , but if your a nail biter it doesn't cure the problem of biting them. But nail biter nails can grow quite quickly with olive oil and lemon juice.
Finger nails grow about 1 nm in about 20-30 seconds

4 Drink lots of milk
5 The olive oil thing works

Fingernails are about grow up to 3mm 6 or 7 days
And the more milk you drink, the faster they will grow. At least they do for me.
Healthy nails grow about 0.12 inch (3mm) each month or 1.4 inches (3.5
cm) each year. The middle fingernail grows the fastest, because the
longer the finger the faster its nail growth.
I used to bite my nails for EVER and I stopped a week and five days ago, and now they are super long and pretty. They grew due to soaking them in olive oil and white vineagar mixed together for about two minutes twice a day. See what happens!
Don't bite them, Shampoo them every night for 1 minuit. They'll grow clean, nice and long!!!
Once a week give yourself a manicure it works very well and its actually fun too.
Well I heard about the nutra nail 5 to 7 day nail growth. I used it on my nails twice a day and they grew super long. You can find them at walgreens, walmart, or a nearest drugstore.

Finger nails, they grow on different paces, depending on the person! If you are a very sporty person, then the finger nails would grow slower ( because hands and fingers tend to be contaminated with bacteria and dirt MORE). If the person is well hygienic and elegant, then the nails will tend to grow faster and healthier and also if you use varies regims! Go to youtube, to get better answers!... I'm just here to tell you the truth!
