When you perform a task well or you have done it perfectly without any mistakes, it means you have nailed it.
So if you get something right, you nail it as you do it best or impressively.

When a person is about to do something and you tell him, “nail it”, it means you are telling him to do it well.
This idiom is also used when a problem is solved successfully or a perfect solution to a problem or an issue is discovered.

For example, Ben has been studying for his Math test which he anticipated as tough paper. After taking his exam, he realizes that it was easy and he has surely nailed it. It means the he has attempted his test successfully.

In this idiom, ‘nail’ is a verb as it shows the action of doing a task perfectly. Its past and past participle form is ‘nailed’.
