Nail biting is the biggest issue I currently have right now. Ever since I was able to bite my nails I have which means my nails are quite short and they don't look nice at all. I previous decided to stop biting my nails and they grew really long but then I moved into my new classes at school and I bit them all off within the first lesson I had with my maths teacher. I noticed that I don't bite my nails when I'm nervous or anything it's only when I'm bored. Long story short I decided to grow them out but this time I am actually trying really hard. I haven't bite them in two or three weeks which sounds really pathetic. They aren't really long but they're longer than usual. In the photo's you can see the difference in the first picture but not so much in the second and third picture. I think I took them weekly and as you can see they aren't long at all really.
The first method I had to try and stop me biting my nails was a really common one. I decided to put plasters on my nails so I wouldn't bite them but it didn't really work because the plasters kept falling off.
My mum bought me and my little sister this nail varnish. It was a clear colour one but the only difference was it tasted revolting, disgusting even but I still found a way to get past the taste and bite my nails. I wouldn't really recommend that nail biting nail varnish, mainly due to the fact whatever you touched then later tasted of the nail varnish.
Then I decided to not do anything and just remind myself not to bite my nails whenever I thought about it. I didn't fixate on my nails which I find works a lot easier than anything else and I am still using this method and I haven't thought about biting my nails for a while now which is good.
The main reason to why I wanted to stop biting my nails is the fact I really want to paint them and the weirdest part is I like tapping them on the table. Yes the main reason is the tapping on table but I find it fun to do in classes and I just play with my nails a lot less now and it's more hygienic not biting nails so I stopped.
