Nail biting, also known as onychophagia, is an oral compulsive habit. It is sometimes described as a parafunctional activity, the common use of the mouth for an activity other than speaking, eating or drinking. Some will agree that bitten nails take so much from your appearance as well.
It’s not entirely clear why nail biting occurs. It is considered an impulse control problem as well as a habit. Some people believe that nail biting is most likely instinctual, left over from our time as primates, and that when we’re stressed these instincts come out against our will.
Short bitten nails don’t look very pleasing to watch so why not do a total makeover?

Basically, you start by putting the tips on and then shaping them. Next, Camila applies a beautiful ruby-red color.
