  • you can buy the clear nail polish that is bitter. The sour taste keeps you from wanting it in your mouth. you should be able to find that at either walmart or beauty suply store like sally's. I would put cuticle oil on the red areas to help it heal.

  • that stop biting nail polish really works, & It does taste like ass. It really helps! And from what i understand, it's not really nail poliosh so it does not have all those toxic things in it.

  • The stop biting stuff is called "Bite It". It really does work, in fact, I need to do it again, he's just started back up again...
