I slammed my finger in a door on accidently. Now it is black and blue. And a little pressure how will I know if I need a hole in my nail? Looks wise.
Nail bruised?: If the nail is black and blue, it means you have a bruise/blood collection under the nail. Piercing the nail will allow the blood to evacuate, and will relieve the pressure.

Trauma: If you're lucky enough to still have some living matrix at the end of the finger, and most times this occurs you definitely are that lucky, the nail should grow back in a matter of many months.
