— The growing part of the nail is under the skin at the nail's proximal end under the epidermis, which is the only living part of a nail.
In mammals, the length and growth rate of nails is related to the length of the terminal phalanges (outermost finger bones). Thus, in humans, the nail of the index finger grows faster than that of the little finger; and fingernails grow up to four times faster than toenails.
In humans, nails grow at an average rate of 3 mm (0.12 in) a month (as they are a form of hair). Fingernails require three to six months to regrow completely, and toenails require 12 to 18 months. Actual growth rate is dependent upon age, sex, season, exercise level, diet, and hereditary factors. Nails grow faster in the summer than in any other season.
Q: Is shipping free?
— A: Shipping isn't really 'free' but it is included in the price of the product. And we will not raise the product price unless the cost of shipping and handling goes up. It's rare, but it happens. And, unfortunately, we must charge shipping to other countries. Please allow 14 to 21 days for international shipping.
Q: Does This Product Really Work?
— A: Yes, it works for over 99.8% who try it. But don't just take our word for it because the proof is in our unsolicited testimonials. If you can take 3 minutes to read what others say about Rx4Nails, and remember we offer a Money Back Guarantee, you will surely order some today.
Q: Is Rx4Nails Gluten-Free?
— A: Yes, all Rx4Nails products are now and will always be Gluten-Free.
Q: I've been considering trying a brush-on calcium that says you'll have stronger nails in a week or less, does your product contain calcium?
— A: Nope, it doesn't contain calcium. Why? Because calcium doesn't work. Your nails aren't made of calcium, but they're actually more like your hair. Imagine putting calcium in your hair? Rx4Nails nourishes and strengthens nails by penetrating deeply, fortifying your own nails and letting the dry cell plates "pump up", while remaining flexible enough to withstand breakage.
Q: How long does Rx4Nails take to work?
— A: Immediately, but you won't notice much difference for a week to week and a half. If used as directed (twice daily) you will then discover your nails sprout growth and they're already healthier. Within about 3 months, if you continue to use Rx4Nails, your nails should be grown out from the cuticle, healthy and beautiful.
Q: My nails split, crack, tear, and they have bumps and ridges down the length of the nail. Will your product help me?
— A: Yes it will! Don't get me wrong...this product can't fix everything. But it can and will strengthen your nails. I have had the same problems and this is why I'm passionate about my product. I've learned that when used 2-3 times daily (which isn't as hard as you might think) my nails grow super fast, they are more resistant to the problems you mentioned.
Q: Does this oil contain any animal products?
— A: Nope. It's vegetable based, all natural, and there's none of that animal testing junk. It's for external use, but is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic used as directed. It's made of a proprietary blend of organic oils, and vitamins. Simple, safe, effective stuff.
Q: I use artificial nails, so what can this oil do for me?
— A: The same it does for anyone who uses it. Just rub it into your cuticles, around the sides of your nails, and under your natural nail. If you continue to use it, the natural nail underneath artificial nails will get stronger. If you take off your artificial nails, use Rx4Nails about 4 times a day for a week, then decrease to twice daily. You'll be amazed at the results.
Q: I love to polish my nails; will this stuff hurt my polish?
— A: Nope! While the oil won't sink into polish and onto your nails, it will strengthen them if you apply it at the cuticle, on the nail sides, and under the nail. You still get the great benefits of healthy nails AND your favorite polish. (Mine's OPIs "Not Your Waitress" red.)
Q: Can I use it on my toenails?
— A: Sure, there's no reason why you can't. Toenails tend to be thicker, but can still chip and break. They need some love too, so give it to them.
When you start using Rx4Nails, you might want to start off with a professional manicure. For one, it sure makes your hands look pretty. Second, cuticles look great. Third, it gives you a great mental boost and desire to keep your nails looking and feeling healthier.
