Is it possbile to cut yourself down there? Because the last time i was taking a shower and i was washing myself i got a spark pain and when i looked in the mirror i had a thin cut on the outside of my labia. Is this normal? (I do have long nails). Thank you so much, oh and what could i possibly do to keep the cut from reopening?

Yup, you can cut yourself just about anywhere.
Since it sounds like a perfectly normal cut, with a logical explanation for how it got there and everything, I wouldn't worry about it. Just treat it like any other cut - keep it clean (regular washing should be fine) and be gentle with it - and it will heal.
