Re: Help for those who bite their nails and tear their cuticles.

It's not a cure, but I do have a couple tips:

1. Try different "stop biting" formulas. Eventually you'll get used to them, but if you switch things up often you wont.

2. Take really good care of your nails. Keep them trimmed and filed, used cuticle oil on your hands every night, paint them fun shades, basically anything you can to make them too pretty/healthy to bite.

3. Keep a rubber band on your wrist and snap it whenever you want to start biting your nails, the negative association might help.

Good luck with this, I know it can be a really hard habit to break, but you can do it!

I do manicures at home as soon as my polish chips even a little bit.

When my polish looks nice, I don't bite my nails or pick at my cuticles too much.
