How to remove a broken nail from a finger
So you’ve broken your nail! What now? This is a common scenario, and one that can be quite frustrating. Luckily, there are several ways to remove a broken nail from a finger.
The most common method is to use a paper clip. Put the paper clip perpendicular to the nail and push it upwards until the nail pops out.
If you’re in a pinch and don’t have a paper clip on hand, you can use a credit card. Push the card straight down onto the nail and wiggle it around until the nail pops out.
If you don’t have either of those options, you can use a nail file. First, make a small nick in the tip of the nail. Then, file the nick until the nail pops out.
Whatever method you use, be sure to use caution. Nails are sharp, and removing a broken nail can be painful. If you can avoid it, try to get a doctor to remove the nail. They will have more experience and will be less likely to cause further damage.

How to avoid further damage when removing a broken nail
If you have a broken nail, there are a few steps you need to take to avoid further damage and ensure a quick and successful removal.
1. Check the nail for additional damage. If there is damage to the nail other than the broken tip, it will be more difficult to remove the nail.
2. Check the condition of the nail bed. If the nail bed is damaged, the nail will be more difficult to remove.
3. Clean the nail. Unless the nail is broken very near the tip, a small amount of dirt or debris can cause the nail to become more difficult to remove.
4. Apply pressure. Apply pressure to the nail with a clean cloth or your finger to make it easier to remove.
5. Use a nail file or a rough object to remove the broken nail. Be careful not to file too much off, or you will cause further damage to the nail.
6. Apply a light oil or cream to the broken nail. This will help to protect the nail and make it easier to remove.
