I guess this isn't really a trend since it has been around for I don't know how long, but if you know a better place to put this, please move it! Please also note that I'm talking about something so general there will obviously be exceptions to my observations (many of which I have seen myself). I've noticed that flip flops and painted toenails are very common in North America. Women there tend to pay a lot of attention to their feet, many often getting pedicures. Yet I rarely saw any with painted fingernails and almost all other make up was only used for very special events and never for day-to-day things. Most who chose to wear a little would only opt for a bit of concealer and lip gloss. To an outsider it gives the impression that feet are cared for above all when it comes to beauty and make up. Whether I'm right or wrong, I'm curious to know why caring for feet seems to be the most popular. I won't guess because I don't want to end up unintentionally creating a leading question and then people only repeat what I've asked as an answer. For any of you who fit the description, what are your personal reasons for choosing to wear flip flops showing off your painted toenails or new pedicure, yet using little to no make up everywhere else?
