Help to Stop Biting Your Nails!

I know it's hard. I literally got over the habit a few months ago (I peeled them not bit them, but same concept)! Here are some tips on how to make this process easier. The first one is the most important in my opinion...

  1. Paint your nails! If you have an awesome design on your nails, it's much harder to destroy it! Plus, who likes the taste of nail polish - yuck!
  2. Dip your fingers in nail polish remover in the morning (non-acetone), the taste will help deter your fingers from getting near your mouth.
  3. Think. Think of everywhere your hands have been that day - door knobs, chairs, kitchen counters, trays, etc... Do you really want all of those things to be in your mouth?
  4. Finally, wear a rubber band. Every time you bite or peel your nails, snap it! Soon you'll associate biting/peeling your nails with a stinging pain. 
Hope this helps! If you're still really having trouble, I can give you some more tips!


  1. good point in number 2! underneath our nails can carry such bad bacteria!

    1. Yeah and biting them just lets it get inside your body!
