By Jeffrey Brian

Nails are important to some girls and women in terms of their appearance. They are an avenue for design and style. Some people may wish to increase the speed at which their nails grow, so they will be able to experiment and change their nails more often. Increasing nail growth is all about making small changes in your daily life.

There are a few things you can do to make your nails grow faster.

Step 1

Increase the blood flow to your fingers by doing daily activities that push the blood into your fingers, such as typing, playing the piano or filing.

Step 2

Increase the protein in your diet by drinking protein shakes or milk or eating more lean meat. You also can take a vitamin D supplement daily.

Step 3

Stay in a warm climate or wear gloves to keep your hands warm at all times. This will increase the blood flow and stimulate growth.

Step 4

Apply a layer of nail toughener or nutrient-filled polish weekly. For faster growth, apply a layer nightly.

Step 5

Give yourself regular manicures and pedicures or go to a professional for regular treatments. File in only one direction, so the nail tip isn't weakened and prone to cracking.
