In what ways can I remove my toe nail?

See a doctor. I would not recommend removing your own toenail. If you've had a trauma to the nail and it is lifting, and bruised or bleeding underneath, see a doctor to make sure you have not broken the bone beneath the nail. If the nail is ingrown or painful, your doctor can numb your toe and remove it in the office, in a controlled environment. I never recommend self-administered "bathroom surgery"!
You should not. Ever try to do so yourself a podiatrist can , under local, do this if it is indicated for some medical reason.
