Many people bite their nails. There could be several reasons for this. Tension, being bored, stress, out of habit, or simply because you like gnawing on your nails.

Your nails definitely won't get any prettier and wounds around the nails can occur. Also because of the nail biting, bacteria that reside under the nail edge can pass through your mouth into your body.

The natural nails of nail biters but also problem nails (cracked nails, brittle nails, ...) can normally be cared for perfectly by placing artificial nails or by enhancing your natural nails with Gel, even if your natural nails are very short.

As a nail-biter, you are well aware of the problems of nail biting:

  1. Nails that are gnawed deep into the nail bed ;
  2. A damaged nail bed, which can cause problems quickly (infections) ;

Bad breath?

Research shows that nail biters are prone to halitosis (very bad breath). A lot of bacteria already live in your mouth - most of which are supposed to be there - but when you also keep putting your fingers in your mouth, it becomes a regular party for bacteria in your mouth. And that gives a smell.
