It's turning black and looks like it will fall off, should I pull it off or leave it?

    I pinched my finger in two bits of metal on the mower, half the nail has gone black, and the end closest in where the nail grows from has a gap now between the end of the nail and my finger. It was hurting a bit but now just feels cold on top. Not sure whether it's better to tape around it and leave it a few weeks to see what happens or try and cut around it an prise it off?

    Tape it on for now. It will come off when the new nail has come away underneath?

    I have found the nails that I have grown as replacements seem to be better than the couple of originals I have left.
