    acrylic nail ripped real nail out from root

    Over a month ago i got my nails done with fake gel extensions. the next day i jammed my right pinky going up the stairs and it ripped the nail out from the root. only a small part of the corner of the nail was still attached at the base. there was a large white piece of nail which was below the acrylic as if it had grown out, except that part of the nail was in my cuticle before being ripped out. after dressing the wound for a week the nail eventually fell off and the nail bed was flat. overtime it has gotten extremely bumpy and has developed horizontal dents and ridges and has grown skin which makes it look like there is somewhat of a nail there although there is no sign of a new nail from my cuticle. if anyone can give me any sort of information or advice on this injury it would really help!

    I have exactly the same thing on both thumbs. Did you get any reply on your question?
