On my calendar in clear view I set a date. I circled the date in which I was going to stop biting my nails. I gave myself two weeks. Duing these two weeks I obtained nail pampering products....lotion, cuticle salve and sally hansens maximum growth. I applied this polish twice per day. To distract me from biting my nails I'd either chew gum or suck on mints. Once my nails had free edge of growth I painted them. Keep up with growth polish every day!
