  • Only to shorten them. About every 2-3 weeks.

  • Yes, I have a bad habit of biting mine. I try to let them grow out, then they start breaking and chipping. It bothers me when they aren't the same length and I end up biting the rest off.

  • You know what I bite my nails, and I'm not just talking about the average nail biter, I do it all day long,when i'm in the shower , while i'm eating breakfast, making lunch for the kids, while i'm washing dishes,any thing can cause me to bite them, nervousness, anxiety,exitment,.boredom,or just being tired, i wish there as a cure.

  • Yes I do and I have forever. I don't bite them down until they bleed, but if I get a ragged end, I bite it off. If they start to peel, I bite it off. I wish I could stop, but hell, I think its too late now.
