In brief: Look at your nails.

To a great extent you can tell by the appearance to see if it has improved.
However, the only way to know if you have a true mycological cure is to have a sample of the nail taken and submitted to a laboratory for testing.

In brief: Culture

The only real way to know is to have a fungal culture done.
But if the nail looks normal and clear this will give you a good idea.
