That might be causing the purply colour of the nail itself, and yellowing can be caused by chemicals and fungus infections and such. You can certainly consult your Dr about fungal infections.
Hi, yes it is just the nail that is this color. I had on black toe nail polish and thought that could of been the reason, but I'm very hestitant on that notion cause I have worn that clor before and nothing ever came about from it. My toe nail on my rt foot has came off but only the half that was purple. So, I'm not sure what is the cause of this.
