Purple fingernails since overexercising

Hi, please tell me what can have caused my fingernails to get purple/bluish after one day of running much more than I was used, on July 14th. Since then, my fingernails stayed purple/bluish.
I have gone through EKG, echo, xray, CT scan, blood work and spirometry test, all came back normal. What other tests can I take?

Fingernails turn blue/purple because of a lack of oxygen. This can be cardiogenic or caused by anemia or certain circulatory diseases (Raynaud's).

Hi, can you tell me what other tests can I get to find out the problem? And if my fingernails are purple all the time, (they have been purple since July 14th) is it still Raynaud's?
