Uggh. I’ve talked before about my unattractive nail biting habit and my struggle to stop. I don’t know if I will ever be free from this particular habit.

Oh well… back on the wagon…
Do you bite your nails? Are you a cuticle chewer? Do you have any remedies for this unsightly problem? As always, let us know!
