In brief: You will have pain

Due to poorly fitted narrow tipped shoes outer edge of nail big toe grows into flesh, causing pain, aggravates by wearing shoes.
Some times you can see red flesh, pus at the edge of nail. It is time to see your dpm or md ( most of md s do not perform toe nail surgery ) to help you.
