I have graduation(promotion) coming up quick and I want to get my nails done. I have always had issues with biting my nails. Other than HoofAlive...does anyone know of something that is easy to get that will make my nails grow fast and healthy? lol. Thanks!

Have you thought of having fake ones put on? I've never done it but I see women who have it professionally done and it looks really nice. I'm not sure how much something like that would cost I have the opposite problem, mine grow too fast.
I can give a little advice on the nail biting. I used to have little OCD behavior thing when I was your age, I swayed. I couldn't stand still. If I got nervous I would start swaying back and forth. Drove everyone crazy. I decided I needed to find another outlet for my nervousness. I started rubbing my earlobe. I know that sounds really goofy but it worked for me. Every time I felt nervous I would grab my earlobe and start rubbing. It got me to stop swaying. Its easier to replace a habit then quit it completely

i don't know what could make them grow fast, but instead of going out and getting your nails done professionally (which can cost around $50+) go to CVS or something like that and get fake nails. The one that say natural or "short" are the best IMO because you can still function normally (if you normally have short nails, or are around horses And they only cost $6 too) . I used them for Prom and Graduation and everyone thought i got them professionally done!

I'm on the CVS website and saw a couple products that grow nails..^ActiveCat=65^ActiveCat=65

I would totally go for the drug store fake nails as well. If you trim and file them down they look really natural. And you can get ones with flowers and such on them now! Super cute!

<----- Nail biter :roll: For special occasions I usually get the drug store nails. I end up taking them off right after anyways, I don't see the need to spend 40-50 dollars on a "real" set of fake nails.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
