In brief: About 6 mo to 1 yr
Toenails do not grow as fast as those of the fingers and depending on how fast your body produces keratin, the substance which nails (and hair) are made of, regrowth can take between 6 months to 1 year; in some cases longer. Other factors that can alter the rate of regrowth include age, previous injury to the nail matrix or nail plate and any other condition that can affect nail growth properties.
