Discolored toe + Nail length

Good evening,

First time reptile and bearded dragon owner. I did hours of reading before I got her. But have a question about her toes.

I got her locally from an individual who said they got her a year ago as a rescue from someone else. I asked all the usual questions and the person stated she was in good health, no metabolic bone disease, was gaining weight good.

I have had her for about a week and been wondering if her second toe (the longest one) on both back feet should be discolored. Not sure if this is normal as it is the same on both sides. She is still quite shy, and she doesn't really seem to move around when I am around, but if I leave and come back she is often found in different parts of the tank. So I don't know if she is really using it. When she is basking it seems to just be hanging (not sure if this is usual) Please see photos and let me know what you think. Might be totally fine and I am overthinking things.

Also, does her nail length look okay, or do you think they should be trimmed? Do you guys buy special clippers for this?

Thanks in advance for the advice, lots to figure out as a new lizard owner.

Note: Sorry if the tank looks crowded I just bought that new basking spot today, and seeing if she will use it. I originally had a different basking spot made from a stick leaned on a log in order to get more height, but she never seemed to want to climb on it so thought I would try this one. It's more of a resin material so might hold heat a bit better.

Note thought it might be retained shed, I did give her a bath yesterday because she had shed on her tail that was kinda stuck. It did help that part but nothing for the toe.

Hello, I also think that it looks like a lingering shedand will probably come off on it's own soon. They do shed in crazy ways with bits + pieces or large areas shed while other areas are still hanging on.

@AHBD Are the nails too long? Should I trim them or leave them? Do I need to get special nail clippers or do human nail clippers work?

They're just a bit long, nothing too bad but type in youtube" how to cut beardie nails" + they will show step by step how to clip them.

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
