You should be able to get the bleeding to stop by wrapping your hamster in a washcloth (this will allow you to safely and gently restrain him.
Then, carefully pull the affected paw from a fold within the washcloth so you can press some corn starch or flour directly into the broken nail.
This will help it clot faster.
A little bit of pressure and the flour or corn starch is sure to stop the bleeding. The trickiest part is being able to hold the little guy so you can manipulate his paw without hurting him or you.
Does this help?
