Gross but Great!
I have bit my nails probably since I have had teeth. my mom tried everything when I was a kid, even monetary bribes. I have tried many different "no bite" polishes always failing. I have now been a non-nail biter for over 40 days! I highly recommend this product!
Amazing for finger sucking child!!!
Wow! This stuff works. My three year old daughter has been sucking her index and middle fingers since she was very little. I can see that her front teeth are moving forward and she talks with a lisp. I knew I had to do something because I knew if I didn't kick the habit now she could suck her fingers after her other set of teeth come in, and since I can't take her fingers away I didn't want her to have an overbite. I did a little research and found this product. I decided to give it a try. Let me just say this. This stuff taste horrible and it lingers in the mouth. The first night I put it on my child she immediately was like aaawwwww yuk yuk!! Of course being a first time mom I felt horrible but knew it would be better for her in the long run. So after the second day of using it I watch her and notice she put her fingers in her mouth and immediately took them out with a sour face. Now its been five days and she doesn't even attempt to put her fingers in her mouth because I think she remembers the taste!!! YaaaYYY!!!! I am so thankful for a product like this!!!
This nasty stuff works
It tastes HORRIBLE but it works. I didn't even use half the bottle. After 20 years I officially stopped biting my nails. I used to bite my nails down to the point of painful bleeding and would even start on my toe nails at times. After about 3 weeks I stopped biting. I have no desire to bite. This stuff tastes terrible and it gets on everything you eat. Will literally make you never want to bite again
love this - my 9 year old son's fingers are always in his mouth. Other products I have tried only last for hours but this lasted a whole week.
Fabulous for long-term nail biters!
I have been biting my nails since I was about 4 years old, and I'm now 16. It has always been a terrible habit of mine, and I cannot stand it for obvious reasons (pain, germs, etc.) I remember that I found this at a CVS when I was about 12 and decided that I'd give it a try. I've never had so much success with a product before! Polishes like these never seem to work for me because I've been biting my nails for so long, but this was fabulous. I tried other brands when I used this one up, but they didn't compare. The taste is very very strong and bitter, and will linger in your mouth for a while. The only issue I would have with it is that if you eat finger foods, be very careful: The taste activates when it comes into contact with your saliva (or any wet surface, I assume). Therefore, if you lick your lips and accidentally touch them with your nails, the taste will get in your mouth. But it does it's job, being helpful with keeping your fingers out of your mouth for any reason (nail biting, thumb sucking, etc.) I highly recommend this for problem nail biting. It helped me, a long time addict, stop. I'm almost positive it will do the same for you!
YUKKKKK. It works.
I have been biting my nails and the skin around my nails since I can remember, and I am 20 years old. I decided it was time to stop (I've said that for years but could never stop on my own), so I did some research and found Hoof Hands StopTheBite. This stuff is terrible. I hate it. I used to find my nails gone because I would chew them subconsciously, but now I get hit with a horrible surprise if I don't realize they go to my mouth. I'm only a couple days in, but I can't stand the stuff. I definitely recommend it!! And as much as I accidentally taste this stuff, no stomachaches. I was concerned about that, but it doesn't make me sick. (other than wanting to gag at times). It works!!
I have been using this product on my 7yr old daughter for about a month and I am amazed at the results. Highly recommend this to anyone with a serious nail biting habit. The taste is bitter and disgusting but effective!
Bought this for my grandson who has been chewing on his fingernails until his nails were so short his fingers were getting sore. He said after the polish is applied it tastes awful. It has really curbed his habit to put his fingers in his mouth.
I figured for $3 Iâd give it a try, this stuff has a very bad taste which is good cause after just 1 week of wearing it i dont even want to put my fingers anywhere near my mouth anymore! The only con is that the taste DEFINITELY tranfers. Like Iâd touch my lip and if i licked my lips i could taste it. Or if i ate doritoes and i went to lick the seasoning from my fingers i could taste it. And it tastes awful and lingers in your mouth almost makes me wanna throw up but it definitely did the job of stopping me from biting my nails! It says to apply this stuff twice a day but i applied it once and the taste was still there a whole week later! After that week Iâve switched to a plain clear coat polish cause i got so annoyed with tasting it when i ate LOL it works though and i will be reapplying it if i notice myself biting again!
Giving it 3 stars because it helped my 9 year old with his thumb sucking, however it did nothing for my 3 year old. As soon as you put it on he licked it right off. It does have a funny taste, I guess he rather sacrifice his taste buds just to suck his thumb. (sad face) I had high expectations about this product because of the reviews. I guess I have to start my search all over again to find a product for my 3 year old
This product is amazing! Ive had this problem for yrs. down to where its raw skin, bleeding. It got so bad i had to go to the ER cause my finger was infected from the nail bitting. You would think i learned my lesson nope. Well i put this stuff on my nails i dont even think and want to bite my nails. The taste is so so bad a couple times ive forgot and just putring my finger to my lips i can taste it. This stuff is amazing i just started couple days ago so im expecting wonderful outcome.
Taste is STRONG!!
Got it for my 2 year old he was sucking his thumb so excessive he was actually cutting through his skin I had to make him stop so I looked into this anti bitting polish. first time I applied I didn't realize how strong it was my son actually threw up! after I tried it I could see why, best way to describe, it's like bitting into an onion. GROSS! apply a drop! for your little ones, because that after taste does not go away. my son is ok and has def stopped sucking thumb, I've only done one droplet at a time and it's still very effective. I would still recommend it so far it's working very well!
I just bought this yesterday and I'm very pleased. I've been biting my nails since I was 5 and I'm pretty sure this is going to stop it. I tried to bite my nails and for the past 15 minutes I still have the bitter taste on my tongue. For the price I'm really impressed. I definitely recommend this nail polish.
as an adult nail biter, found this one product did the trick
This ish is gross! I recommend 100%
This stuff is so gross. I will never bite my nails if this stuff is on them. The taste reminds me of earwax. Works great! My son accidently got a taste of it he stated gagging and eventually threw up!
My son bits his nails still as soon as I put the stuff on him and it dries.
My 2.5 year old who never stops sucking her thumb stopped completely once i applied this on her nail. It was a God send
fabulous and AWFUL YUK
I read the reviews and decided to give it a try. WOW they are so right. and it is only 2.75. I was using Oraly no bite. that's 8.05 a bottle and is not half as nasty and long lasting as Hoof.
THIS STUFF WORKS!!!!
THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORKS!!!! I am 42 years old and cannot remember a time that I didn't bite my nails that is until a couple months ago. I was talking to a friend about hating my hands and them being so ugly and wanting to get acrylics so i could feel better about them. So my friend went and bought me this product. I put it on my nails and let me tell ya 1 time was all it took. i haven't bitten my nails since!!!! My fingernails are now getting stronger and longer than they ever have been before without being fake. I won't even bite off a split or cracked nail anymore. So if you are a biter use this product it does actually work!!!
Works- but flawed.
Yes, I do admit, it worked for my nail biting habit, but-- it. spreads. don't even think about eating finger foods with this on. And for some strange reason, ever since I put it on and put my finger to my mouth out of instinct (tasting the polish) I. Can't. Get. It. Out. I don't know if this was just for me, but whatever I put my tongue on or try to eat, it burns my tongue like im licking the straight polish! I've even tried it with things I havent even touched with my hands, and it burns, with the EXTREMELY bitter aftertaste.
