How fast do fingernails grow?

Healthy nails grow about 0.8 inches (2 centimeters) each year. The middle fingernail grows the fastest, because the longer the finger, the faster its nail growth. Fingernails grow four times as fast as toenails. (The Handy Science Answer Book, compiled by the Science and Technology department of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh)
