My left big toe nail is less than half attached....

I was at a friend's party about a week ago. I was dance when a guy accidentally stepped backwards onto my big toe. I didn't have my shoes on. And he didn't have on just any shoes, they were formal men's shoes. The heel landed just a little past where the crest is.
Now a week later, the nail is mostly blue and loose. I guess what would be called the "beginning" of the nail is still under the skin, but it is loose. But the upper half is attached, or so it feels.
So my question is, will my nail ever fall off on it's own? Are there other methods of removal?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
