Response to Hey, Former Nail-Biters, How Did You Quit?:
I have OCD and anxiety which manifested itself in biting my nails for a really long time. I would get really distressed because my nails were different lengths, shapes, had chipped paint- it was just another thing for me to worry and obsess over. That all changed when I went to prom and got acryllics- a layer of cement that costs $20/month to get put on my nails. You can’t bite acryllics unless you are ready for some pain, both in your teeth and nails. It has also helped relax me because even though I now have to get them done every month, they’re a uniform shape and color. It’s honestly one of the most grounding and relaxing things I do for myself!
