Fingernail & Toenail Alcohol Testing
Accurate Testing for Up to 90 Days After Use
At FastestLabs®, we are committed to offering our clients the most accurate alcohol testing available. With more than 10 years of experience in the industry, we are able to quickly and reliably provide you with a snapshot of an individual’s long and short-term alcohol consumption. Fingernail and toenail alcohol testing is an ideal way to look at a person’s alcohol use over a 90 day period, as biomarkers are left behind in fingernail and toenail tissue for many weeks after alcohol has been consumed.
Our certified collectors follow the strictest industry standards when collecting samples and all our testing is done in our clean, state-of-the-art labs. Whether you need court-admissible results for a legal matter, are a parent who suspects alcohol use on the part of your child or teen, or are an employer who needs to remain DOT compliant, you can rely on Fastest Labs.

When to Choose Nail Alcohol Testing
Nail alcohol testing is an ideal alternative when a hair alcohol test cannot be carried out for various reasons. Similar to the hair test, a nail alcohol test can detect alcohol consumption for a greater length of time than a breathalyzer, urine, or saliva test.
Some of the advantages of our finger and toenail alcohol tests include:
- Negative test results available within 3 days
- Positive test results verified in the lab within 3 days
- Best test for long-term alcohol consumption (up to 90 days)
- Ideal for regularly scheduled employee testing
- Ideal for pre-employment alcohol screening
- Better suited for large-scale, all-gender alcohol testing
While hair alcohol tests are somewhat easier to carry out, nail alcohol tests can help you avoid common problems associated with hair tests, including the use of bleach, or lack of hair.
How the Test is Carried Out
At Fastest Labs, we strive to serve every client within five minutes of the time they walk through our doors. Nail alcohol testing is relatively quick, easy, and non-intrusive. One of our certified Fastest Labs collectors will take a sample clipping from each of the test subject’s ten digits. Once the tests have been completed, results are typically available within 3 days. Positive results may undergo additional testing in order to verify the results. This can take up to one additional day.
No matter your alcohol testing needs, big or small, you can rely on our team for friendly, professional service carried out quickly and discreetly. When paired with our other alcohol tests, including our breath alcohol test, saliva test, and urine test, the nail alcohol test can provide a comprehensive picture of a person’s previous and recent alcohol consumption.
