You can wait for the nail to drop or you can use a hot paperclip to pierce the surface of the nail. Using this, the blood will just come out of the nail bed and the pain will reduce. Ensure that the paper clip has been cleaned with spirit and then the piercing part is heated till red hot by using a open flame.
Also, clean the finger nail to help you prevent an infection.
Hope this helps you.
