It’s been a bit of a hiatus for my handsome alt bros; what have they been getting into? While one is killing it in analyst training, the other is dealing with whether or not to use a hashtag in his latest selfie copy or whether or not it’s “gay” to post (he’s not a homophobe people calm down). The other is dealing with moving into a new bro pad in the East Village (hopefully it’s close enough to Ella, rlly important). The other, you ask? Getting oysters with me, dancing on a roof somewhere.
This latest question I asked has to do with hygiene and style. Nails. Whenever mine look “nice” - and by nice I mean neutral tans and greys very short - I get compliments from men (read: boys). But 60% of the time I’m rocking a struggle mani, and I’m like, um do you notice?
Here’s what they had to say -
Alt Bro #1: My my my…. I must say - chicks with them nails done are a major turn on for me. I don’t know why. I think it’s because I love a badass chick. But wow. Girls who take care of themselves to that level is definitely cool for me. It’s kinda hand and hand with their swag. If they rock a style like that then you know they are confident, forward, and probably a freak in the sheets - a requirement for alt bro #1. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not my only type of girl. I’m pretty versatile in my types. But definitely top 3 type of chicks I like is a girl with the type of swag to rock them nails did up for me.
Alt Bro #2: Never really notice girls nails unless they’re gross on both hands and feet, just really not a detail I ever think about. But I do think colorful big nails are tacky 90% of the time.
Alt Bro #3: I like women who look after their nails. I notice nice colors n designs and find it quite impressive when a woman does the designs herself because it looks close to impossible but somehow these ladies pull it off. I am not a fan of the long, fake, pointy jawns that some girls wear. Makes me cringe for some reason. But to each their own.
Alt Bro #4: I think nails are sort of like purses. They probably mean a lot more to the girl and her friends than they do to most guys.
I mean don’t get me wrong, I like when a girl is done up nice and nails are very much a part of that but I’ve never not pursued a female because her nails weren’t painted. If they’re super ratchet and fuxed up then it’s probably more of a hygiene problem in which case they likely have other issues that would stop me from approaching them but in general, to me at least, nails don’t matter all that much. It’s great when you have them looking fresh but it’s not a deal breaker if you don’t.
There you have it ya’ll. Keep them nails did for Alt Bro #1, get creative for alt bro #3, and for the others - just don’t be ratchet. Simple enough.
Hi! I’ve never gotten microderm because everytime I ask they tell me my skin should stick with peels. What I do know about it is that microderm is more for the texture - not for any active blemishes. I think if you’re worried about texture of your skin microderm would be good, but for me, i react great to peels which just make you really glow and give a more even tone to the skin. You should ask your aesthetician or dermatologist which is best for your skin. It depends what issues you are trying to fix and the type of skin you have. I highly recommend peels though. LOVE them. Did a series of laser facials back a few years ago when my skin was buggin and it was a life changer. You might want to ask about that too!
