Stubbed/fractured?: If it is stubbed, then it'll probably be a contusion that will take a few days to subside. If there is bruising under the nail, there's a chance that you'll still see some residual bruising at that nail for up to a year, but the toe would be ok. However, if you fractured the toe, then it's a minimum of 6-8 weeks if you started treating the toe after it was injured.
