For the last couple months, my left pinky-toenail has been blue. Well, more of a purple, actually.
I have no idea how I did it. I don't remember stubbing it, or dropping anything heavy on it. It's just like it decided one day that it had had enough of being roughly transparent and would like to branch out.
It still grows, albeit more slowly than the other nails, so the root isn't dead. And the discoloration at the base is more reddish than bluish, so whatever caused it seems to be about over with. And whatever it is is part of (or stuck to) the underside of the nail, not the toe itself.
Well, I'm not in pain, and the toe looks normal except for the freakish toenail, so I guess I'll just wait a few more weeks for whatever this is/was to finish growing out.
