How can I start? Well, to begin with, I have to say this is the very first set I've done, and the reason why I chose this topic is because I have this problem and I would love to share what I've learned about it and receive some feedback from other girls that suffer from it as me, so that we all can get better fighting against nail biting...Sounds pretty dramatic uh? Still I'm sure some of you understand what i mean..well...let's start!
Have you ever looked at your hands and sight because of your very short nails? Have you ever found yourself chipping your nail polish with your tooth right after having your manicure done? Have you ever said I need to stop biting my nails and giving up a minute later? If you said yes to that then, my friend, you have quite a problem.
Nail biting is a very anti hygienic issue that most of us have to deal with, not to say it's kind of disgusting for us *and sometimes other people* and also unaesthetic. *by order of priority*
So here you have a piece of advice to prevent from biting our nails and get to have strong, clean and good-looking nails.
*First of all relax and check your agenda. What for? Well, I know how disappointing it is when you try to change your life *or stop biting your poor nails* and the other day you've done what you didn't have to. So, please, check that you start this difficult project when there's not an important exam, a good movie you die to see or an important book you want to read coming towards.
*After you've chosen when you're going to star, you need to clean your nails very well. Why? You need to prepare your nails for your project and give them a whole day without chemicals so that they can breathe *it's not a bad idea to take care of them by adding a hand&nails hydrating cream*. Don't forget to prepare your mind too and try to convince yourself you need to stop biting your delicate nails.
*After you've prepared your nails you should have a manicure done. It would be best if you could spend some money and go to a beauty saloon *If you can't afford that it's alright but make sure to give yourself the best manicure you've ever have with your favorite nail polish* Remember that people are most likely to take care of those things that they've struggled to get the most, that way you can make sure it would last at least a couple of hours before the nail-biting monster we have inside attacks.
*After that, all you need to know is that from now on your best friend will be always a nail shaper. That's right, because we all know that lots of times the biting starts when we feel something "wrong" into our nails, that tiny and sharp nail corner or that sloopy nail border are our worst enemies. You need to finish them off before you succumb to temptation.
*Don't forget to clean you nails and reapply nail polish as soon as you notice that your nail is slightly chipped, that way the process kind of restarts and you get stronger faith in yourself with every biteless day..you know what I mean.
*Now it all depends on how strong you are, you'd say "as if i hadn't tried this before" but, believe me, having prevented those attractive uneven borders and chipped nails from happening, you're almost there, just remember to stay focused, you have a couple of seconds between you rise your hands and touch your mouth so, stop right there and think about how hard you've worked until that time.
*The help of your friends should always be welcomed! They love you and you don't have to be embarrassed to ask for their help. That way, every time they see you touching your lips or intending to bite your nails they can help you to resist.
*Obviously we've heard about those stimulus&response methods such as bitter or spicy nail polish and even the one where you hurt yourself with an elastic fiber each time you bite your nails...i'm not a huge fan of those methods but if they help you...I just need to say...you can't stop doing something bad by doing something worse. Just think about that.
And that's all, i think. Please, if there's anything you would like to add, feel free to comment, i'd love to try everything possible to stop! For me..I'll start today so..good luck to everyone! Hope you liked it.
