It's never happened to me, but it's happened to tons of my friends. Just ice it. The black is just from a bruise that is forming under your nail. If you feel prolonged, intense pressure on your nail then I would get it checked out. Sometimes you can pop a vessle and have to get blood drained, but that's pretty rare. It should just go away by itself in a few days, just like any other bruise.

I slammed mine in a door a year ago so hard that half the nail fell off.  Put a bandage on it, ice it, and don't punch anything for a few days.

I had it happen about a couple weeks ago.. I slammed in the car door and ripped about 2 inches of skin off. I couldnt bend it for about a week and my nail turned black but doesnt hurt anymore. And it hasnt fallen off yet either which is good. It should get better within a few months or as soon as the nail grows all the way out.

This happened to me last year. Most likely your nail will fall off but should grow back normal.

ice it and be extra careful with it
if it hurts really bad it may help to tape it to the next finger to support it..
if its just the nail.. just ice your finger

that just happened to me a couple weeks ago
I slammed it in the door and it turned purple then i went inside and like tried to put it in cold water but that hurt too bad. The next day i went to the doctor and he like poked two holes in the nail by lighting a paperclip. now anything below the quick( the line on the bottem of the nail) is completely white, sorta looks like i put white out on it.The wholes like turned black n the nail isd still purple. What you should do is light a paperclip with a lighter in poke two holes in your nail near the center
good luck :)

been like a month and the nail is still black. And where it is black it is detached from my finger. But I doubt it will fall off since it is good on half the nail..
