Q: Please show me example sentences with Fight tooth and nail.
A: There are few ways to look at this phrase.

1: When I hear this phrase, it generally refers to an unsanctioned fight. A brawl outside where the fighters are so mad at each other that they are willing to do anything to hurt then other person. Anything. This goes past the classic fist fight to biting, clawing at the eyes, or repeated hits to the genitals. In my mind this usually is a life or death situation, person A was attacked by person B so person A is fighting for his/her life.

2: A time in your life you gave everything to complete the task. For example: A boxer, who should be down, gets up to keep fighting. The boxer may struggle to even stay conscious but gives the last ounce of energy to keep fighting.

3: This can, however, have non fighting applications. "I fought tooth an nail to get to the store through the snow storm." This shows that I push through a difficult problem with everything I had to be there. It's an exaggeration but it's still an acceptable use of the phrase.
