Any tips on not biting your nails?

I always bite my nails to the point their stubs and sometimes bleed when i was a kid i had some of that stuff from the doc u put on it but i had to say it wasnt nasty. I want my nails to grow long and keep them long since im pregnant!

  • Discipline momma! Are you taking any prenatal vitamins? They help nail and hair grow. You can buy OTC nasty tasting stuff to put on your nails, maybe you think its gross now?

  • I keep mine painted nice and pretty. That keeps me from wanting to bite on them and mess them up.

  • There is more bacteria under your nails than in a toilet. Repeat this over & over.
