Toenails act as a protection to the toe. Sometimes they do get bashed and as a result blacken and in some cases fall off until the new nail regrows. When this occurs it is important to ensure that the new nail is growing normally, check with your podiatrist. Cosmetically false nails can be applied temporariliy for special occasions whilst the nail regrows.
