I used to bite my nails all the time when I was younger but when I was a teenager I started growing them so I could paint them with nail varnish to make them look good and I never bit them again. I think it is a nasty habit.

No, I don't I never had this habit and one of the reasons is that I just can't stand my nail touching my tooth, it gives me agony lol And the other reason is that my nails are not too long and I like to keep them like this

I can't remember my childhood days, so am not sure if I did that long ago. But as I can recall, I didn't have that mannerism or habit of biting my finger nails, as it is unhealthy and unpleasant to do so. As what health specialists would say, our hands, in particular, acquires more germs than any other part of our body. From every thing that we hold, grad or cling on to, have germs in it. One person I notice biting finger nails is, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers. I laugh at him everytime the camera zooms on him and focusing on his face while biting his nails, I don't know if he's aware of it or not though!;)
