Nails are tools ,have a look at our animal counterparts.

The nail bed is there for the nail to be joined to the finger ,and that is the nailbeds task.

Its part of the whole nail.

The nail is simply a tool.

In our case its not for hunting like some of out animal counterparts.

We use it for aiding in healing ,scratching ,grooming and so forth.

The nail was not designed for the nailbed ,to protect the nailbed ,but the nailbed rather in aid for nail growth.

Lose the whole nail and nailbed and skin wil cover the loss.

Without fingernails, we couldn't grip things well. Nails helps us hold something much better.

Toe nails ,have the same functions as our finger nails.

Or had the same function in the past.

Our nails would be shaped differently if we had fur.

Humans need toe nails because they protect the delicate nail bed. Finger nails are used for scratching and peeling foods.

I dont know wat FINGERTOE nails are but: Finger nails: its fine to wear nail polish on your finger nails. Dont keep it on for a long period of time because your nails will yellow ( which is NOT a pretty sight ) Try using nail hardeners by Sally Hansen. They worked for me and my nails are now LONG!!! Toe Nails: Toe are fine to paint. There actually easier to paint then finger nails. Once again you can use nail hardeners and that will make them stronger but remember to take it off in a couple of weeks so your toe nails wont turn YELLOW!

Pedicuring simply means painting your toe nails, just like how manicuring means painting your finger nails.

Keratins dead tissue, so finger nails, toe nails, horse hooves, horns etc.

The longer your fingers the faster your nail grows. Your toes are shorter than your fingers so they grow slower. Fingernails grow approx 2X the rate of your toe nails.
