Cause of toes turning blacked?

Cause of toes turning blacked?

Nails or toes?: If you mean the toes themselves, this is a little worrisome. Usually the skin will turn black if there is tissue death--necrosis--of the skin.

Toe Bruise..: If it is black and blue, then you have managed to traumatize the soft tissue elements, causing a bleed and subsequent bruise formation.
