This method is super easy and convenient because it would leave you with no option to bite the already little nails left behind. If there's nothing to bite, you will not be eager to eat them up. Am I right or Am I right? Make sure you carry a small nail cutter with you all the time.



#2 Dive into the magnificent world of manicures

A little hole in your pocket can help you overcome this distressing habit. Opt for a fancy mani session that would be your constant reminder that you need to quit the bad habit of biting your nails. This could be the only thing you need to help fix the issue. If your nails are done nicely & look pretty, you might be less compelled to want to ruin the gorgeousness on your fingers.


#3 Change it for a better habit

Another way to say bye-bye to this habit is to take up another one. Whenever you feel like biting your nails, try diverting your mind into something else which is rather productive like chewing a piece of gum or biting mints. You can also sit on your hands or play a hand game if with someone to avoid it completely.
