March 18th: I already haven't bitten my nails in 3 days. But I am now deciding I want to make a snap guide about this. I will be adding on as I go throughout the journey! Hope this helps, Xoxo
You almost always want to wear a clear base polish to protect your nails. You should go without it 3-4 days and then re-apply.
Also, you want to keep your hands moisturized 24/7. This is the lotion I use. I have one upstairs in my house and one downstairs & I keep a smaller bottle with me at all times.
March 19th: One thing to remember is that PROGRESS WILL NOT ALWAYS BE FAST. Learn to be proud of yourself even if you haven't bitten your nails in a couple of hours.
March 20th: I have now painted my nails to try to keep me from biting them. This is a good technique but I know it doesn't work for everyone! It works for around a day for me and then I peel it off!
You should learn what type of nail biter are you. Do you bite your nails while taking exams, or in a meeting at work? You could be biting because you are anxious.
Some people will bite their nails because they're bored. KEEP YOUR HANDS AND MOUTH OCCUPIED. For mouth: chew gum, eat mints, drink a smoothie. Anything! For your hands: play with a pen, always move
your hands so you don't have a chance to put them in your mouth. If you are chewing your nail & you realize, stop immediately and sit on your hands for a couple of minutes and think about the nails
YOU want to make your hands BEAUTIFUL. I know perfect nails aren't a big deal, but if you want to stop biting them you should disciple yourself so you learn to stop.
March 21st: I took off my nail polish so I could see how they are. I don't really see results, BUT KEEP TRYING.
I'm kind of disappointed that I bit one of my nails because it broke. BROKEN NAILS ARE TEMPTATIONS TO BITE. Don't make that an excuse. Cut the nail off even though it will be short.
It may be embarrassing, but tell your friends. Your parents, siblings, boyfriend, girlfriend, whoever it is, tell them to yell at you when they notice you biting! It helps you recognize the habit.
Helpful tip: Turn on your stopwatch and check it every time you want to bite your nails. IT HELPS SEEING HOW LONG YOU HAVENT BITTEN. Make sure you stop it and restart if you do bite.
March 23rd: you can see how short my nail is that I bit & my nails grew a little. they started to break so I took a nail file and smoothly rubbed the edges. do not cut your nails while growing them
March 24th: Patiently waiting for them to grow. P.S.. don't mind the test answers written on my hand
