These are the supplies you need.

These are the supplies you need.

To begin, first be aware that you are biting your nails. When you put your fingers in your mouth, take it out.

Go to a manicure place and get an expensive mani. That way, you won't want to ruin it and you will try not to bite.

Still biting? Put bandaids on every single finger. Keep them on for about 2 days. This will give your nails a couple of days to grow out a little bit and will have you not be able to bite them.

When you take the bandages off, you should notice a big difference.

Everyday make sure that you have no hangnails, and if you do, use a cuticle nipper ASAP. Also, moisturize your hands with moisturizer once or twice a day. That will stop hangnails from forming.

File and clip your nails. Don't let them grow too long, but also dont clip them too short. That can be hard to do sometimes but keeping your nails healthy will help them grow.

Now all you can do is wait. Let them grow. Clip them if they grow too long.

It takes 21 days to grow out of a habit. So do these steps for 21 days, and see if it helps you. You should have clean and healthy nails in no time.
