Fingernails and toenails are made of a tough protein called keratin.Finger nails are combination of bone with Keratin, but without tissues or muscles or blood cells, they are formed like a protection layer which are extended from the inner bone but does not continue with the flesh or Finger, but are ttached to Finger.

As I know, they are kind of skin not bone. Bones cannot grow so fast and be cut by nail clippers but degenerate skins can be possible.
