I had a bad habit of biting my nails when I was little, then I started painting them because I didn't want to get the polish on my teeth, and it didn't taste that good either. Maybe you should try it. I haven't chewed my nails in about 7 years now.
That's understandable. Maybe if you just keep them cut short or use that no-bite stuff. My dad's habit was worse than mine and he would chew his nails until they bled. Everyone has there own remedies, I hope you find one that works for you. Nail biting is a hard habit to kick.
I discovered at a young age that acrylic paint sticks to nail polish very well and never comes off unless you repaint your nails so I gave up on ever having painted nails. My toes on the other hand are always painted
wow that's awesome! good luck I was with the Y, and stuck in level 4 when I had the skills to be in level 6 -___- a lot of the girls at my Y didn't move up like they should have, and eventually quit or left for another gym xD but it's so cool you made it to 9!!
