How to use "Nail" in context?

Nails are the structure of the fingers used for gripping and manipulating objects. Each nail contains a quickening nerve and is connected to the finger by a tough plate-like skin called the nail bed. All nails are similar in shape and size, with the exception of the big and small fingers. Nails grow at a rate of 1 to 2 mm per week. If they are allowed to grow too long they can become unmanageably short and difficult to trim correctly. Nails are generally composed of keratin, a tough protein, and are around 0.5 mm in thickness.
