Concerned yes: But probably not worried. The type of redness you describe is most often caused by a vascular disorder, commonly brought on by venous valvular insufficiency. There are some autoimmune diseases, that cause color changes, but more often in the digits. You should mention your symptoms to our family doctor and possibly get a referral to a vascular specialist.

Lots of things: cause orange nails. Excessive amount of carotenes (from eating lots of carrots), fungal nail infections, microtrauma, hepatitis ... just to name some. If the orange hue on your nailbeds enhance, become more orange, over time, you should definitely visit your physician to get some metabolic testing done. If the orange hue clears up, probably just a passing thing.

Vascular vs. Allergy: The first suspicion raised by your symptoms is vascular compromise. One cannot normally feel a genuine pulse on the peroneal (fibular or lateral) side. Missing hair and cold lower legs is most pathognomonic of vascular insufficiency. Are you sure about the normal ABI? Other things which could cause these symptoms include Autoimmune disorders and possibly chronic phlebitis. Best get it checked
