As you state the nail stays brown even as it grows out this usually eliminates a bruise staining the nail. It sounds like fungus which means a visit to your podiatrist is in order . While there methods of dealing with fungus can be discussed

Depends if there is fungus, can treat with topicalmeds, oral antifungals, or combination of both oral and topical. Also laser treatment is effective or complete matricectomy.
