The nail apparatus is composed of several parts, including the nail matrix, bed, and plate, the hyponychium, and the surrounding proximal and lateral nail folds (figure 1).
The proximal and lateral nail folds frame the nail; the cuticle is the keratinized border of the proximal nail fold (1,2).

In the nail matrix, keratinocites (a type of skin cell) are compacted and flattened as they push forward toward the nail plate.
The nail bed, cuticle, and matrix do, however, require oxygen because they are composed of live skin cells, but they are supplied by the numerous capillaries that feed the fingertip and nail bed with oxygen-rich blood.
To properly prepare a natural nail for enhancement application all is required is a light buffing of the surface- with a 240 grit buffer to remove the shine.

The fingertip is frequently injured because it is the point of interaction between the body and one's surroundings in the majority of activities performed on a daily basis, and it is the most distal portion of the upper extremities.
As the cells are produced, they force cells ahead to flatten and stream distally into the nail because of the confining boundaries of the nail fold.
A scar of the dorsal roof of the nail fold creates a dull streak on the nail surface, while a scar of the germinal matrix may cause a split or absent nail, and a scar in the sterile matrix results in a split or nonadherent nail beyond the scar.

Recent studies have concluded that as long as the nail is still partially adherent to the nailbed or paronychia and is not displaced out of the nail fold, removal of the nail and repair of the nailbed does not improve outcome versus simple trephination.
Nail fragments may be repaired together first using adhesive, then secured into the nail fold by a thin layer placed under the nail, using gentle downward pressure while the adhesive dries.
Alternatively, nail fragments may be pieced together on the nailbed, with a light coating of adhesive wiped or dripped between adjoining fragments and on skin adjacent to the perimeter of the nail.
