Magique No-Bite includes a bitter additive in their anti-nail biting formula to stop nail biting and stop thumb sucking. The taste of Magique NoBite will surprise you with its strong bitter taste, and is a good reminder not to put the fingers in the mouth during the daytime (at night the taste buds are sleeping too). This polish may work for adults, or kids that have the habit of nail biting, but it does not work well for thumb sucking or with younger children. This no bite nail polish can be found at Walmart, Walgreens or Amazon.
Although Magique seems like it will work equally for nail biting and thumb sucking, it does not. It is important to understand how the bad tasting polish works, and if it is so bad that your child will definitely not put their fingers in their mouth. What do you think is worse for your child –not sucking or enduring a bad taste? Many children get used to the bad taste in just a day or so. If you are thinking about No Bite nail polish for toddlers, we recommend you consider something else that will physically prevent the thumb from being sucked on.
Anti-Nail Biting Polish DOES NOT WORK for thumb suckers. It is designed for daytime nail biters – and only offers a little reminder. Obviously won’t work while your child is sleeping and their taste buds are turned off. Children under four years old don’t dislike the taste because they haven’t yet developed taste buds to dislike it yet. Nail polish was developed for nails, not thumbs.
You don’t have to be an expert at applying nail polish to use this product. If you decide to buy this product, you can chose either the brush applicator or dropper. The brush is recommended for ease of use. For nail biters, just cover the edge of the fingernails and cuticles. For thumb suckers, cover the entire thumb nail and cuticles. Magique NoBite requires just two smooth strokes for an even application and dries in less than two minutes. With normal hand washing and bathing, you can expect it to stay potent for a couple days, then you will need to re-apply. Continue to use this product for a full 30 days after the habit seems to have subsided to break the habit completely.

Take better care of your nails. Clip them regularly and consider using a file. If they’re well groomed with no hang-nails or pointy edges, there will be no nail to bite.
