Yes bruises doappear blue from the blood that is spread throughout the tissue that is injured. Just because you were X-rayed in the ER and no fracture was noted does not mean you absolutely do not have one. X-rays do not show ligament injuries, where an MRI does. If you are still hurting and concerned then go see a podiatrist or orthopedist.
