I want my nails to grow just a little long but I keep on biting them! It's a bad habit! What do I do?

so I have two questions. 1: how do I stop biting my nails? 2: how do I make my nails grow longer faster?

buy short fake nails. glue them on. it's hard to bite through the plastic. and your nails will grow underneath

First try thinking about how many germs are under fingernails, then try chewing on something else instead like gum or a toothpick. For growing your nails faster you could try a dietary supplement called Biotin. I know someone that's had great success with it.

First off: Love the name! Second off: I agree with December. My mom sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) gets fake nails. About your second question, I don't know.

I've heard of putting your hands in vinegar. The taste o the vinegar will stay on your nails for a few days and biting vinegar tasting nails isn't very pleasant. Also there is a stick that you paint on your nails called "no bite" or something like that.. It also has a horrible taste. To make your nails grow longer.. Just take care of them. Base & top coat when you paint your nails. And try to you strengtheners or hardening coats. I am pretty sure that there is a special polish to help nail growth too :)

No.. You can put it in food so it's not toxic.

I have the same problem. What I've done recently is take Biotin. A pill that helps your hair and nails grow. I just got acrylics on my nails. Press on nails will come off easy. Especially when you really feel the need to bite your nails. With acrylics, you definitely can't bite through that. And if you do get it I suggest getting a soft nude color because if you keep them on for a while, you could paint over them whatever you like so you won't get bored with the same color you had when you got them done. And taking biotin while having the acrylics will keep your nails growing and keep you from biting
