Why do we bite our nails?


Did you know that 20 to 30% of the population bite their nails? Why do we bite our nails? In this article, your nail supply expert Maryton will tell you the answers.

Nail biting usually begins in childhood and can accelerate during adolescence. There are several causes for this phenomenon:

  • Genetic. If you bite your nails, it’s probably because your parents do too and you adopted this behavior by imitation.
  • Frustration or boredom. Once nail biting becomes a habit, it becomes an unconscious act when a person is bored or frustrated.
  • Anxiety and stress. Nail biting can be a way for a person to decompress from stress or anxiety.
  • Concentration. Sometimes a person bites their nails unconsciously while solving a problem.

In order to have healthy nails, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure set to care for your nails!
