Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
1. When speaking of physical appearance, does it make sense to say:
"He seems to have LIGHT EYES."
Note: By this, I mean he seems to have blue or green eyes.
2. While at this, and does this sentence make sense:
"She had ARCHED legs."

Grammatically, sentence one is correct but confusing. I'd prefer "pale eyes" to avoid any ambiguity.
Sentence 2 does not make sense, although you could say that she "arched her legs".

But a person could have light grey or light brown eyes. Blue and green are not the only eye colours that could be 'light'.
And I'm not sure why you say 'seems'. Surely even if you can't see the exact colour, at least you can tell if the eyes are light or dark.
As for the 'arched legs', I hate to think what this might mean. It sounds like a very, very severe physical impairment. Do you perhaps mean 'bow legs'?

Light eyes?? no. Use the color. And are they a beautiful blue or geeen?
Arched legs legs? Don't know what might be.

No, neither makes sense. I would have no idea what you meant by either.

#1 is ok but unless your more specific its not very clear .. #2 isnt comprehensible and sounds even alittle vulgar ..
