Cut v notches in the nail, this encourages the nail to pull together and out from the sides of the toe (make sure to cover with bandage so it does not get caught ). Soaking your toe in hot salt water will encourage it to be soft and discourage infection. Hope this helps.
Seriously, I tried to file and clip one out and it did NOT work! Go to a podiatrist, they will numb your toe and cut it out, it's not that bad. Mine got so bad they had to go way into the side of my toe. Go to the dr, don't do it yourself, you run the risk of infection and making it worse.
