I have bit my nails for as long as I can remember so two weeks ago I decided to stop. I got them painted black gel and let them grow. Only two weeks later they were this length.

But then. I cut them the next day and at school I bit them. I was devastated. And it didn't help that I had booked to get them painted the next day. 😭😭😭

I bit them a bit more, on both hands. Now they have the tiniest white edges but I'm determined to let them grow! 😭😬😫

I will keep you updated on how they grow. Remember, if you don't bite them and apply nail growth polish and/or 'no more biting' stuff you should see improvements very soon. 😘

Just applied cuticle softener and pushed my cuticles back. Also added a layer of 7 day growth formula to help my nails grow faster.

Ok, I bit my nails. A lot. I'm applying the growth polish still and am trying my best not to bite them anymore. Remember, they will grow back and it is completely normal to bite them again.

Been trying really hard to stop biting them but am finding it very hard. They are short but not beyond repair. Going to keep applying the growth formula twice a day and will keep treating my cuticles.

Ok, it's been about 5 days since I last uploaded and my nails are already much better. I have kept applying the growth formula and pushing back my cuticles twice a day. I can paint them now as well

I have gorgeous white edges on my nails now and they are easy to paint. I keep pushing back my cuticles and applying the growth formula at least once a week.

Ok. I'm going to be honest with you guys. I bit them. But I'll still get them painted next week and they'll still be long for a pretty Christmas mani! Yeah I'm upset but it's nothing I can't fix. 🙁

Yay! Just 4 days later (no biting and nail growth serum application daily) and my nails don't look as bad! Fair enough, there's no white edges, but they look presentable now. Keep growing! 🙏🏻
