It's happened to my mom, it's happened to me, and it's happened to my grandma. Each of us, at some point or another, has experienced toenail loss. In my particular situation, it occurred in college, when I was sprucing up a hand-me-down sofa, and accidentally dropped a can of upholstery cleaner on my tootsies. Ouch.

Eventually, my injured toenail slipped off, and to fill the void left by my absentee nail, I fashioned up a faux nail by making use of some cheery polish, along with a steady hand. Have you ever had to create your own makeshift toenail, or have your nails remained intact?
