Nail biting is bad habit many of us have, it is unsettling because if we think about what is under our nails, how unattractive they look, and how bad it is for you teeth. Well here are some ways to help you improve your bad habits, make your nails look nice and your teeth looking great!

1.Keep Mouth and Hands Busy

Usually when you are eating you won’t bite your nails or when you are writing, painting, and cooking. Give your nail biting habit a farewell.

2. Get Acrylic Nails or a Manicure 

When you go for a manicure or get acrylic nails you want them to be nice and shiny until they fall off. They also help to stop biting your nails because you don’t want to ruin them because it is usually minimum 30 dollars to get them done.

3. It RUINS you Teeth!!!

Biting nails can chip you  teeth and make them look bad. Biting your nails can ruin your smile because it can crack and break your teeth. Also it causes a lot of jaw problems.

4. Coat them with a Bad Taste

Giving your nails a bad taste will definitely help you stop biting your nails. If I had papaya on my nails or like that smell on my nails I wouldn’t dare bite my nails because I really dislike papaya.

5.  It makes you Sick

If you think about it when biting your nails a lot of bacteria and germs are entering your mouth. All that bad bacteria can get you really sick and honestly getting sick is no fun. I have seen that when people bite their nails they also peel off the dried up skin and that is an entry for germs to go in.

6. Weird Looking Nails

If you damage the tissue around your nails, they may stop growing the way they use to or they way that they should be growing. This gives you abnormal growing nails.

7. Cut Them Short 

If they are already short why would you want to make them look worse by biting them? If there isn’t enough nail to grip with your teeth, it won’t feel as satisfying when you try to bite them.

8. Nail Infection 

Believe it or not but biting your nails can give your nails a really bad infection. This will cause them to look really ugly and unattractive. It can also be a long term effect because your nails will need medication to recover from the infection.
