Our viens appear blue because there is a lack of pure oxygen. This causes the blood to be extremely dark, or blue in some cases. When a vien is cut open, the blood flows out and absorbs the fresh, pure oxygen and becomes bright read. How bright/dark your blood is depends on the amounts of iron and whatnot in your blood.
