Ripped my Big Toenail clean off will it grow back?

About two weeks ago, I moved a couch and just slightly bumped the end of my big toe on the couch. Well I had a acrylic nail on it and it ripped the nail clean off my foot. I just measured it and it came off just a little past the 1/4 inch mark past the cuticle. Question is did it get the nail bed and what are the chances of it growing back? Now the cuticle is shrinking up. I have psoriasis in my nails, that is the reason for the fake toenail. I wanted pretty toes for my Mothers funeral :-( . I have been soaking it in epsom salts and keeping the bandaids laced with antibiotic ointment in them on it, and it is really looking pretty good. Any people out there with the same type of injury?????
