Dog broke his fingernail and it was bleeding

Hello. My Golden broke his fingernail. I do not know when did it happen, I just seen him licking his paw and some blood on the carpet. I noticed that there is blood on his rear paw. I took a closer look and his fingernail is broken right at the beginning of the nail. Its still holding on there but its curved and has a crack. I cleaned it with a wet cotton and applied Kwik Stop (held a wet cotton with kwik powder on his paw and squeezed few drops on the nail.) Not sure what to do next, every vet nearby is closed. I wouldn't want to cut that nail myself. He is sleeping now.
Should I take him into his cage and leave it until tomorrow?

If he's not messing with it, it should be okay till tomorrow. If he'll leave a bandage alone, you could wrap his paw to keep it from bleeding on your carpet again.
