    My Ma used to put some kind of disgusting nail varnish that tasted VILE if you put it in your mouth....

    Worked though.

    until i hid it

    Apparently there's a special lotion you can buy in Afganistan - it's pretty expensive so you'd probably have to steal it from a shop - actually if you get caught that'll solve your problem

    Found this article about "skin picking and nail biting" which seem to be related - it might help:

    When I was younger we started to put cortizone cream on mine so they would heal (I bit them until they were practically bloody) It turns out that when you ingest cortizone cream orally it tastes awful and increases blood flow the skin in your mouth and throat. A horrid taste and the sense that my throat was swelling shut was enough to make me quit.

    ok i got a plan

    put your fingers in your ears - so you get earwax on them - if there is no earwax wait for a bit till there is

    earwax tastes horrible so therefore you wont bite your nails
    Single handedly destroying the NHS from the inside

    Took some serious concentration to stop it.
