Stop Biting Nails with Nail Polish and Care
Edited by Hotelier, Amanda, Eng
Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, I will be showing you one way that you can take care of your hands on a daily basis in order for you to hopefully stop biting your fingernails. If you're like me, and you've been a lifelong nail biter, you've probably constantly been looking for ways to stop. Yet many of the traditional techniques, such as a rubber band around the wrist, telling friends and family, and even the horrible-tasting fingernail polish don't seem to work. What has worked for me is a daily application of lotion and then a periodic manicure. I use cuticle oil, nail hardener, and a color, preferably a bright color.
- 2Massage the hands together. Make sure to apply lotion especially to the finger area, including the fingernails. We have very, very dry skin, so frequent applications of lotion are completely necessary. It's also a great opportunity to give ourselves a nice little hand massage. Once we have finished, we can move on to our nails.Advertisement
- 9Allow the oil to soak in and then pat the area dry. We will do this immediately for this tutorial to save a little bit of time. Here, we are using a cotton disc pad. Typically, we do allow a bit of time to let the oil completely soak in. The nail hardener and the nail polish will not apply correctly if we have oil sitting on the fingernails.

The key is to keep your hands and the nail area moisturized and nicely manicured, so that you can avoid picking at or biting your fingernail area. Allow the fingernails to grow out little by little.
