Fingernails. Male cadets are not authorized to wear nail polish. If worn by female cadets, nail polish will be a single color that does not distinctly contrast with the female cadet’s complexion, detract from the uniform, or be extreme colors. Some examples of intense colors include, but are not limited to, purple, gold, blue, black, bright (fire engine) red, and fluorescent colors. Do not apply designs to nails or use two-tone or multi-tone colors. However, white-tip French manicures are authorized. Fingernails must not exceed 1⁄4 inch in length beyond the tip of the finger and must be clean and well-groomed.

e. Skirts. If worn, the length of the skirt may not vary beyond the top and bottom of the kneecap. Your dress should fit smoothly, should hang naturally, and must not be excessively tight. You must wear hosiery with the skirt. Choose sheer nylon in a neutral dark brown, black, off-black, or dark blue shade that complements the uniform and your skin tone.

f. Earrings: Women may wear small (no larger than 6mm in diameter), conservative round or square white pearl, gold, white diamond, or silver earrings that fit tight against the ear and will not extend below the earlobe. ALL EARRINGS WILL BE WORN IN THE LOWEST FLESHY LOBE AREA OF THE EAR. EARRINGS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE EAR CARTILAGE.

g. Body Piercing: Female cadets in uniform are not allowed to attach or display objects, articles, jewelry, or ornamentation to or through the ear (except as permitted above), nose, tongue, or any exposed body part (including anything that might be visible through the uniform). Cadets may not cover these articles with make-up, band-aids, or wear clear post pins to hide body piercings.
