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. This can happen if blood vessels are damaged or inflamed. Sometimes, blood under the skin can cause this appearance as well. If you mean the nails, that can be a sign that a mold has gotten under the nails. Either way, I recommend a doctor visit. ...Read more

Still can be Raynaud: It ca still be raynauds as there is no blood test or imaging or anything that can rule it out (a good exam and observation of the event is important). If you have excessive sweaty feet or hands this also may be hyperhidrosis with increased sympathetic nervous system activity (not harmful to you). Would be nice to see a good picture of a classic event. ...Read more
