Lost part of my toenail... ?

Last week I smashed my big toe moving my loveseat to vacuum under it.  I lost about a quarter of my toenail, which finally came off yesterday.

Is there anything I can do to make my toe look better?  I mean, I know I can polish it, but it's going to look funny with that quarter missing.  But is there anything I can do?

I think you just have to wait for it to grow out.  Otherwise, put a bandaid on it.

I have had that happen only it was my whole toenail.  I just kept a bandaid on it until it grew back.  They do make fake toenails so you may be able to use them since you didn't lose the whole thing.

Ouch! I think you'll just have to wait until it grows back.

Bummer... I figured that socks or bandaids were all I could do, but was hoping.  lol

Thanks ladies!
