I had a mishap today, and my fingernail ripped off. Will it grow back? Is there anything I need to do for it to help with the process?

I bet that hurt!
I have issues with big toe nail, it grew back but thick and ugly. Have to file it down sometimes to trim.

In my experience it usually will but not always, I have one that two thirds has grown back OK but the other third does it's own thing, grows and then breaks off again. All good fun,should be older enough to know when to keep my fingers out of the way by now.

Will normally grow back on it's own, but it is never the same shape as the old one. I have lost several over the years, without fail the new ones are rounder, the originals were flatter

Wow, that really had to hurt! Nails will usually grow back if they have ripped off or were removed. However, the nail probably won't look the same as it used to, and it usually takes several months for it to completely grow back.

Please keep the injury bandaged and watch out for any signs of infection.
