I am always growing, but I never get any taller.

They get longer, not taller.

I am hard but I can bend.

Obviously.

I can be seen in many colors, but those colors are not me.

Due to nail varnish.

I move often, but I can't move unassisted.

Walking around does the trick.

I cannot feel pleasure or pain.

Even scissors won't hurt.

Unless it's too hot, I rarely see the light of day.

Walking around bare footed.

I usually live in darkness, except when I wash.

Hard to wash your feet with shoes or socks on.
