  • I once accidentally pulled off my little toenail when I removed my sock. It didn't hurt but it took awhile before it grew back. If you are visiting the beach, I might put a band-aid on it...just to make sure it doesn't get too much sand in it or get hit too often.

  • Not a toe nail but I lost a finger nail after slamming it in a door. Hurt like a @$^@^&#@!!!!!
    And it took three months to grow back.
    I would say just keep it covered and be careful, if it's still sensitive when you go bring a pare of water shoes just in case. That way you can still enjoy the water. :)
