Your nails are not tools...

Stop treating your nails like tools, although they do make for a good weapon in times of need. Avoid using them for picking, scratching, digging, opening tins etc. Whether you like it or not, it's a fact that most of us do commit this beauty crime time and again; so this post serves as a reminder to pamper your hands and nails as well. For beautiful, strong nails, you should not just get rid of that obnoxious nail biting habit but also protect your hands by wearing gloves (buy from here), if you have chores to do. .Better still, be a diva, don't do anything with your hands!  Just kidding!

    Hi, I am an nail biter and skin picker as well. I have used acrylic nails in the past and for me it really was a life saver. I bit my nails so that there was not nail left at all. I felt a sigh of relief when I had them put on. I make them really short. I went in maybe every two weeks and had them revised. My nails grew back under the acrylic nails. If one fell off I went back in and had them reseal it. It took about 6 months for me to feel in control and at that point my nails had no flaws and I was able to stop biting.

  5. I just pick until the nails fall off. I found myself actually enjoying the acrylic nail-picking as if on some sort of vacation or perhaps like, a challenge. I found it maybe lessened the picking but barely anything noticeable. You get used to the nails like you get used to wiping your butt with the nails on. :(

  6. I got acrylic nails to stop biting my nails but because I couldn't feel my fingertips I just ended up doing even more damage to my skin. Although it it a lot harder to pick with them on I ended up with bigger bruises on my face from trying to pick with them. I don't know if it is just me but that is my story ;)

    I have long, natural nails and am considering the acrylics even though they damage your nails just to stop this picking! I agree the cost of maintaining the nails is something to think about. Thx for emailing me as well. I can totally understand you trying to find ways around the nails to continue to pick! Is this the first time you've done the acrylic nails? Let me know how it goes for you and if it seems to work for you, I will get them done as well.

    nail biting can cause infections not only around your nails, but also in your mouth. Chronic nail biting can lead to abnormal nail growth, and even nail deformities. To prevent nail biting, try applying acrylic nails or use a bitter-tasting polish until you are able to break the habit. Because nail biting is often a stress-associated activity, consider learning a stress management technique, such as yoga or meditation, that works for you.
