#1 – Stop Biting / Picking Your Nails!!
First things first, you gotta stop biting those nails! Give us nail techs a chance and give us some nails that aren’t bitten down to the skin! I know it can be tricky (talking as a previous nail biter) but to really get those nails strong and not breaking off every other day, you’ve got to stop.
You can get nail varnishes that actually taste gross to prevent you from biting…but save your money and perhaps just think of how amazing your nails will look after you’ve had a treatment.
Biting your nails can really affect the quality of your nail bed, and can make your fingers and nails very thin and sore when we gently file them.
I’d suggest trying a Gel Polish or a Builder Gel treatment to help promote growth and encourage those nails to get stronger naturally initially before any extensions. You will be amazing at just 2 weeks of growth with a Gel Polish treatment.
