In brief: JUST MAKE SURE

THE BROKEN PART DOESNT GET CAUGHT ON A SOCK AND RIP OFF.
YOU CAN PUT A BANDAID OVER THE TOENAIL TO PROTECT IT.

In brief: Dang nub-it.

Trim any loose nail.
Apply topical antibiotic and a Band-Aid. You will have to change the dressing for several days. Eventually the raw or exposed tissue will toughen up and a protective bandage will not be needed. Be patient and the nail will slowly return to normal.
