3/4 of my nail is not sticking to my nailbed which was damaged five years ago. How can I fix this?

No matter how much I cut it, it keeps growing back not sticking to the nail bed. I'm afraid when it comes out I'll have no nail growing back. Should I remove it surgically or leave it until it falls out? It's really embarrassing, sometimes I polish it to cover it. Thank you!

Hello I am a chiropodist, and I am afraid the answer is not one you will want. if the nail was badly damaged a long time ago e.g. 18 months and has not re-attatched by now then the chances are it never will.
Was it a finger or toenail? For toenails we can use Wilde-pedique to create you a prosthetic nail which looks normal and you can paint.
