In brief: Laser treatment
I think hearng "oral antifungals" ruin your liver is a lack of information.
If your liver enzymes are normal it is a relatively safe medication. It can be pulse dosed or given daily. If given daily you may want to recheck at 4 week intervals teh lover enzymes.

In brief: YAG Laser
There are laser treatments that are available.
These produce heat that penetrate your nail and burs the fungal cells. However, they may not work 100% of the time. They are used to help clear nails, you must still prevent reinfection.

In brief: JUST AN FYI
Although other options can be explored, oral Lamisil (terbinafine) has a long and safe track record.
Cure rate maybe around 70%.

In brief: New lasers may work
A person with toenail fungus can talk with a primary care doctor or a dermatologist about the treatment options.
Anti-fungal medicines can be strong on the liver, but that doesn't mean such medicines will "ruin" every patient's liver. Usually, only the unlucky patients get liver damage (many patients don't get liver problems). Foot doctors (podiatrists) have new lasers to treat toenail fungus.
