Okay, I bumped my toe on a dresser, and my toe nail is kind of purplish and then my shoe made it even worse. Should I wear sandals now ?

In brief: Wear shoes or sandal
You probably bleed a small amount under your nail.
This will grow out over months not days. Pain should subside in a few days. Until then don't wear shoes that put pressure on that toe.
