You should drink the vodka now...it will kill the pain.

A LOOOOOONG time ago a friend worked at a bowling alley that made awesomely potent long island iced teas. Evidently after 3 of them I attempted to bowl, but instead dropped a 12 pound bowling ball on my big toe. I didn't feel a thing, but I had a black toenail for weeks, and then lost it. But It really didn't hurt at all at the time...

So you show that evil vodka bottle how it is, and drink that sucker, and piss it all away!

You can run a knife under there to release pressure, but I'm not Doc and you should not take my advice.

Ouch!

I always took a super small drill bit, and drilled/tapped a tiny hole through the top nail by hand, and released the pressure that way.

Bubble gum vodka? sounds like that could hurt your stomach as much as your toe.

That like pepto with a punch?

Vodka is supposedly good for cleaning your feet though.

I have the same thought with many things, but few as painful.

Double ouch!

Better than sticking a drill bit in your toe, you should use a hot paperclip or straight pin.

Find a small paperclip, heat it over a flame until the tip is red hot, and press into the nail. It may not penetrate on the first attempt, though you will quickly see that you are melting a hole in the nail. When you make it through, the blood underneath will immediately cool the paperclip as the pressure releases... This method is nicer since it avoids further injury.
