how to stop biting your nails! Submitted by bnnylvr99
Biting your nails can be very annoying and ugly. Sometimes people bite their nails because they are nervous, sad, angry, or just bored and has nothing else to do. Biting your nails is not hereditary, although you may see other people do it, so you kind of want to fit in, so maybe 'contagious' in a way! If you bite on your nails, the nails will be damaged severely. They might split, fall off, or their growth will be stunted. Saliva could get trapped underneath the nail and fungus or bacteria could grow there, causing severe pain and loss of the nail. What you can do is wrap tape around your nails. Yes, it may look silly, but you know you are doing yourself a favor. Maybe you could paint your nails, so if you try to bite them, it would taste bad. or, every time you want to bite your nail, smack yourself. It's like punishment for biting someone. Soon enough, you will not want to be smacked and will stop biting.

Bathe your nails in vinegar and lemon juice for 10-15 minutes then paint with nail varish... Your nails will look nice so you wont want to bite them and if you do end up biting them they will taste nasty so you wont bite them... (you dont need to use vinegar or lemon juice, you can use any flavoring you dont like)
