S_C answered Thursday July 1 2004, 2:46 pm: Here is an old fashioned way...
Put a rubberband or a ponytail holder around your wrist and each time you pick/bite your nails snap it! The more you bite/pick the harder you snap.

Find out why you bite your nails, is it stress?
If you replace that bad habit with a good one everytime you will find your self wondering why you ever did the bad one!

Well, you could take up guitar- that way your nails have to be short! =)
But if you really want nails, the no-bite stuff won't work.
What I did was:
I put on nail polish, and made my SHORT nails look really nice. When I found myself starting to pick them, I would look at how pretty they were with the color. And I would carry around a SOFT nail file- and instead of picking them, I would file them gently. That way, the shape looked great, too! That gave me even more reason to stop picking them. You just have to replace the habit with something that is healthy for your nails, like filing them.
Eventually, you will stop picking them, and they will get longer. Also, use a nail polish that makes them stronger- a nail polish with vitamins and minerals to protect and strengthen your nails. It will make them stronger, and make them grow faster.
Once my nails grew out, I found them to get in the way. But you may like them. Have fun! =)
