my big toenail is growing back with multiple layers

about 4 months ago i dropped a can full of soda onto my big toe. It bruised really badly under the nail right at the base where the cuticle meets the nail. Slowly the bruised part of the nail started to chip away until I had a big hole in my nail and pretty much the whole nail that existed when the injury happened died, but it kept growing and a healthy nail slowly moved in. A couple of days ago the dead part of the nail disconnected on one side so I cut it off. I realized that under the new nail growing in was another one. The one on top is about twice as this thick and has grown about a half inch. The nail just below that one has grown about a quarter inch past the top one. Also there is another one beneath both of them but its only on the left side like a half inch wide. Also about a half month ago I injured my toe and caused it to bleed in the area of where lowest nail ends.

I just wanted to know if it was normal to have multiple layers of toenail growing in.
