Nail avulsion: You probably developed a subungal (below the nail) hematoma (blood blister). It raises teh nail off it's bed and will naturally fall off, however if painful, make an appointment with a dermatologist or podiatrist to have it trimmed off quickly so it can return to growing normally. Good luck.
