Say Goodbye to Nail Biting and Hello to Stunning Nails

Do you find yourself nibbling on your nails when stress kicks in? Well, you're not alone! 

Nail biting, also known as onychophagia, is a common habit that can wreak havoc on your nail health and hinder your style game. 

But fear not, gorgeous nail enthusiasts! We've got the scoop on how to kick the nail-biting habit to the curb and welcome healthier, stunning nails with open arms.

The Sneaky Connection Between Stress and Nail Biting

Nail biting is often a subconscious outlet for nervous energy. Some start doing it during childhood, with the habit persisting into adulthood. It may seem impossible to stop if you've had this habit for a long time, but it's doable. 

First, you need to identify your triggers. Knowing what causes the stress empowers you and allows you to address it. 

Of course, this isn't foolproof because your nail-biting tendencies may result from psychological issues. Still, it's an excellent place to start.

Once you've figured out what triggers you, you can create game plans to follow if the urge to bite your nail rises. 

An example is to dive into a quick mindfulness exercise. Take deep breaths and focus on your breathing, which may help you release stress and tamper down the nail-biting desire.

Let's Get Practical: Nail Care Techniques for Blissful Fingers

Enough of nail-biting – let's dive into the world of nail care and unleash your inner nail goddess! 

Here are some practical techniques that will have your fingers feeling fabulous in no time.

1. Keep 'Em Short and Sweet

Short Nails

Short nails are trendy and less tempting to nibble on. They're also easy to paint! 

If the nail-biting urge is particularly heavy on your mind, why not set regular dates with a nail file or clippers? Embrace the chic and low-maintenance look that short nails bring.

2. The Power of Distraction

Sometimes, it's not the stress that has you biting your nails. It may be because your hands are just idle. 

Knowing this, why not engage your hands in creative and fulfilling activities to keep your mind occupied? You can try out knitting or drawing, which are fun hobbies. If you don't have the time, you can invest in fidget toys or stress balls.

3. Unfamiliar Taste: The Secret Weapon

There are days when busy hands and short nails don't help. What then? You can always try painting your nails so that the taste of the nail polish will deter you from the habit.

Many nail polishes are bitter due to the ingredients they have. These nail polishes last long but can be harmful in the long run. Instead, consider water-based nail polishes like Nami's Color Me Sunshine. This popping summer polish is safe for your nails and leaves you looking fab.

4. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Your nails need hydration just as much as your skin and hair. So, make it a point to fulfill the required daily water intake. For adults, you need around two to three liters a day.

It may seem minor, but drinking water helps nourish your nails and prevents them from becoming brittle and breaking easily. Another way of nourishing your nails is applying cuticle oil before bedtime. Nami’s cuticle oil, for example, is a non-toxic rose oil that can help prevent your cuticles from cracking or peeling.

5. Mind Your Diet: Nourish from Within

Biotin-rich foods

It's easy to get distracted by the outside stuff and neglect what's within. Other care acts can help you achieve beautiful nails, but it may be for naught if you don't have a balanced diet.

When it comes to nail care, you need biotin, a water-based soluble that the body doesn't store. You can get this nutrient from eggs, avocados, and sweet potatoes. You can also invest in biotin supplements if needed.

6. Gentle Care for Fragile Nails

Nowadays, many beauty products are enticing for their aesthetic benefits. It's fun collecting nail polishes in cute colors, giving you the chance to create nail art that wow others.

Unfortunately, not all of these nail products are good for you, and if you have weak nails from nail-biting, you risk worsening their condition. 

When possible, purchase products that are gentle on your nails and body. You can also supplement your nail care by using cuticle oils and moisturizers, leaving your nails healthy and your skin glowing.
