I'm very neurotic about my nails. I have a pretty strong c-curve, so clippers tend to bend my nails until they snap. I like them long, but if I don't take good care of them, they peel at the edges. So, I use a glass nail file because it's less likely to cause the nail to split and I only file in one direction. If I break a nail because I decide to dig through something like a puppy, I use clippers to trim them all to the same length, then file them to my desired shape.

Biting, though that's habitual and probably anxiety-related. Sooner or later I need to find a way to knock it off, but I will do it without thinking in response to stress.

It's not the biting itself that bothers me, really. The problem with doing so nervously is that they get too short.

I'm a nail biter. I also chew on my toe nails. :roll:

I wish I were that flexible.

But for the past month or so (as some of you may recognize, ever since coming to good ol' Freedomland), they've been getting weak, and tearing like paper. My once proud claws have been reduced to a mere husk of their former glory.

I wonder if I've been missing any important micronutrient?

So, I've been taking zinc supplements for an unrelated reason and my nails have stopped tearing.

Coincidence or not?

That sounds like proper sciencing to me!

It will bump the thread if you edit the last post made. If he wants to edit his posts, that's on him. We don't need to really engage further if that is the decision he has made.
