    >As a member of the Cute Girl
    >Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the
    >Rules when I wear sandals and other

    >I promise to always wear sandals that

    >I will go polish-free or vow to keep
    >the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.

    This is so true! Cosmo would probably print that!!

    That is hilarious! My feet actually look pretty good right now, but I've been going polish-free all winter. I think it's just about time to book my first pedicure ($10??? For ONE TOE, maybe!!!) of the year.

    I will confess to doing the big-toe touchup thing, but that's usually the only toe that needs it, honest! :uhoh21:

    Cute. Unkempt toes skeeve me out. I become feet obsessive this time of year. They forgot to add MOISTURIZE. Ashy feet *shudder*

    Amen to these simple rules. I happen to be fortunate and have very cute feet!

    I so agree, I have been preaching many of these rules to my 11 yr old this year who goes around with chipped polish all the time - drives me crazy!

    And moisturize those cracked heels.

    Where is the cracked heel capital of the world?

    Why Krakatoa of course!
