Nails: Nails are scaly structures made of dead cells and keratin. Nails are an extension of the epidermis, the thin, uppermost layer of the skin. Functions of the nails include protecting the ends of the fingers and toes and aiding in gripping and holding objects. Nails are attached to a nail bed and grow out of living cells found at the base of the nails in the nail matrix. The parts of nails include a free edge, nail body and nail root. Conditions that can afflict nails include subungal hematoma, hangnail, fungal infection, trauma and inflammation.
