Big Toenail Ripped Off

My fiance was moving our coffee table the night before last and caught the nail on my big toe. It has ripped off. I think it is completely gone, but it may still be attached right at the base of the nail. It is incredibly painful. What should I do about it? I've read several different suggestions online - some say wrap it with tape, some say remove the nail and soak your foot with water and mild soap, some say soak with salt water - what can be done? Thanks from a very sore toe!!
