I am a licensed nail tech. I used to bite my nails, too. MAYBE: Promise her a big girl manicure if she can let them grow a little bit, or just take her to a local salon and let her `look` at all the polish colors and let her `talk` to a professional about proper care of nails ( this kind of 1 minute consultation should be complimentary!) or you can buy "dont bite it" polish that has a matte finish and tastes bitter. - * or get the book "The Bearenstein Bears and the bad habit " ..... sister bear starts each day with 10 dimes, she has to "give up" a dime each time she bites her nails...... when she is able to save up a certian amount of money - she gets to go shopping. HOPE THIS HELPS!
