You can't change your nail bed as that's determined by genetics. What you're born with is what you have. As for your cuticles those will always grow back because it's living skin.

Instead of cutting you should try pushing them back and use a cuticle remover.  You just have to have patience and it will lengthen.

My nails look similar(ish) to that when they're short, but when I just let them grow, the skin behind starts to attach (and the nail part that us attached turns pink, not white). Of course, once the nail is off my finger, the skin behind still tries to grow up them, so I have to push it down.

I agree with Zadidoll. It' genetics. I dunno, I have always had naturally long and thin nailbeds so I don't know what to say other than that.

This is not true.

 

Start with a cuticle remover, like the blue cross one. Use it gently, and remove the ecxess cuticle clinging to the nail with a Q-tip. As I already said, be very very gentle and dont push them back too much. Use once a week.

 

And then, do not use anything sharp/pointy to rinse under your nail-line. Always use a nailbrush if there is a need for cleaning under the nail. When the nail grow out this way, it will extend the nailbed. The nail is "dragging the nailbed with it" as it grows out.

 

I`ve had huge sucsess using this method, completely transformed my nails and extended the nailbeds with almost 7 mm.

 

Also, make sure to check the  loodie loodie loodie blog on everything nail related, it is a huge resource for really good and helpful information.

I did bite my nails when I was young and I had short, ugly, rigid, wide nail beds.  

 

Here is your help:

 

Use nail oil on your nails twice a day and your nail beds should grow; and in about a month you should see a slight difference. 

 

Use cuticle oil that contains vitamins.

 

It really works. It took me about 1 year to achieve about a 1/8 of a inch; which is better than none.

 

I hope to reach my full bed length in about 1 more year or less.

 

It also depends on how fast your nails grow.

 

Please do not push back your cuticles during this time; this time is like a healing process.

 

This really works and is all natural.

It is very easy to grow a bigger nail bed. And a longer nail bed.

 

I have done it succesfully, and so have several of my friends wink.gif

Try pushing your cuticles, but if that doesn't work then I'm not sure you can change the size of your nail bed.

Very interesting! I honestly thought you couldn't change the length of your nailbed and I've always wished for longer ones.
