Why is the color of my toe turning to purple?

My toes are red, like a fire red. They don't hurt, but i guess feel a little wierd. I'm not quite sure how to describe it. They are a little warm also. When i'm in the shower, i've noticed that my toes turn purple. Why does it do this? What's wrong with my toes?
