I've done nail extensions on extremely short bitten nails.
You would have to have I fills a lot more often while your nails grow
Underneath.
Clients tend to stop biting when they have extensions on.
Hope this helps :-)

Yes do some cute one and you won't bite them again.

Yes you can do it. Gel nails are the best option and you would not bite them again. Do some cute design and you won't spoil it.

However bitten your nails are they can be done providing the surrounding skin is not swollen and the skin unbroken. Sculptured acrylic nails would generally work best as this method can create an illusion that the portions of the nail is not of a nail biter. You need to go for maintenance more frequently so be prepared for the commitment. Check with the salon/nail tech on their experience. I would be happy to offer you a free consultation and a sample on one of your nails if the condition of them permit.

I have done nail biters and they now have lovely nails to be proud of. Acrylic or Gel sculpts are usually the best alternative for bitten nails. Your nail technician will be able to give you all the advice and aftercare you should need...hope that helps you...

just have to see how short they are but go for gel nails if you are going to get anything done less harmful. i am mobile that does nail art and the best nails is long nails you can get that horrible tasting stuff that you put over your nails to stop you biting worth ago put mittens on to get out of the habbit and don't be weak and take the glove of lol x

It depends,pay a visit to the nail tech and they will advise you.you will have to have them quite short to make them manageable. :)

I think you should go to a salon and get them to check them out. You can still get them done when you bite them, it just depends how much you have and whether a therapist is willing to do them or not

It depends how bitten and damaged they are, a consultation will define details.
