Our Full Review

Honest10 for nail biting is taking the nail biting problem very seriously, for those who are want to quit on the first try.

There are many nail treatment formulas on the market that produce varying results.  Why is a product successful at treating the habit for one person but not for the other? Until now, the road to successfully kicking the nail biting habit has only been about the formula in the bottle.  Honest10 has broadened the scope of the “formula” for success to include managing the behavior associated with the habit with a kit for behavior tracking and rewards, nail grooming tools to ensure healthy skin and nail growth, and a strong nail treatment formula to avert the nail biting.  Honest10 is the only nail biting solution to get to the root of the problem: changing the behavior, not just an aversion to the bitter formula on the nails. 

HUGE VALUE.  The Honest10 KIT is our highest recommended anti nail biting polish solution because you get so much value for the low price. For about the same price as Mavala Stop (the former leading brand), you get

  • A stronger formula, that has been safety tested
  • More liquid treatment (fl. oz) than Mavala Stop
  • Professional two-sided nail file with grit designed specifically for soft nails of nail biters
  • Hangnail trimmer, to remove raggedy edges
  • Progress chart and stickers to track progress, and keep you motivated (not just for kids)

Maximize chances for success every day.  Honest10 for nail biting has taken a close look at why other products fail. The answer in part has to do with the nail treatment itself, the other part has to do with managing the urges to nibble on the nails every hour of every day.  Why do we have the urge to nibble our nails? Is it stress? Is it something about the finger or the nail itself?  These may have been the reasons the habit started in the first place but once the habit is established, it is more like an involuntary reflex. Stress may no longer be the reason for the habit, the habitual triggers are. What are the common triggers for nail biting? 

A trigger could be something simple such as sensitivity to an uneven surface on the nail, or a certain activity may trigger the reflex, such as watching TV or sitting at a stoplight in your car.

Anti-Nail Biting Polish DOES NOT WORK for thumb suckers at night. It is designed for daytime nail biters. Obviously it won’t work while your child is sleeping and their taste buds are turned off. Children under three years old don’t dislike the taste because they haven’t yet developed taste buds to dislike it yet. Nail polish was developed primarily for nail biters.

The bottled formula is a key component in the program because the aversion to the taste creates a reaction that gets your attention when you need it the most: As soon as you engage in the nail biting the bitter formula grabs you and says “You are doing it again!” Honest10’s super bitterness makes you stop and think about what you are doing and increases your awareness of the habit so the next time you have the urge you will hesitate before you do.

Honest10 comes with a hangnail trimmer and two-sided nail file on a keychain.  The rough areas on the nail and skin around the nail trigger the nail biting reflex. These annoying pieces of skin and nail crop up daily on chewed up nails and fingers.  When you start daily nail grooming and stop reinjuring the nails and fingers, the smoother and healthier the nails and fingers will become. Honest10 nail treatment has vitamin E to help heal the skin and nails as they grow. 

The progress chart included in the kit helps you use Honest10 daily and keep track of your success. Consistency can make the difference between quitting the habit for good or being a nail biter. Tracking progress is important. When you use Honest10 every day, you will have visual proof on your nails and on the chart of how far you have come. Honest10 for nail biting boasts 95% success in under two weeks!

Is Honest10 safe? The formula is strong enough for adults and safe for kids.  The Honest10 nail treatment may be used for thumb sucking on kids ages 3 and up.  There is not a better nail treatment formula for how to stop biting nails.  The Motivational tracking system included for the nail biter may also be used for the thumb sucking child as well.  The colorful emoji stickers offer a fun reward and tracking system for the child.  The Honest10 formula is free of the following harmful ingredients commonly found in nail polish:

  1. Definitely worth the money to buy the kit! After years of biting my nails I was finally able to kick the habit. I had my doubts this product would work and the accessories are important, but it really helps to follow a plan included in the Honest 10 kit. It is important to give daily attention to your nails as you are trying to kick the habit and this product kit keeps you focused on that. Product tastes horrible and will keep the nail out of the mouth.

  2. My son sucked his finger while watching TV and sometimes at school. We started using H10, it applies easily and my son thinks it tastes horrible – perfect for keeping fingers out of the mouth. It doesn’t wash off in a matter of hours like all the others. Within days he has lost interest in sucking.

  3. I started biting my nails when I was a teen and now in my 30’s I have been trying to kick the habit I have had for such a long time. I didn’t realize how important it was to use nail tools to trim and clean up the rough areas on the fingers when trying to stop the nail biting habit. Hang nails are triggers for more biting. The chart helped me set a goal to stick to a program and kick this habit for good! The sauce is horrible tasting!
