Nails grow from cells that multiply within the base of the nail, after that layer on top of each other and harden. The frameworks of the nail consist of: Nail matrix, where nail growth occurs, tucked under the skin behind the nail; Nail plate, the visible part of the nail; Nail bed, the nail plate rests on top of the nail bed. The nail plate looks pink since of the blood-rich veins in the nail bed; Lunula, the crescent-moon form that you can in some cases see at the base of the nail plate; Nail folds up, the slender skin grooves that hold the nail plate in position; Cuticle, the flap of slim tissue over the base of the nail plate.
