Hello, my name is Kristen!
I originally started this blog as "No More Nail Biting" in April of 2011 because I was sick of having short ugly nails. Nails that I would hide by always having my hands in loose fists. Nails I would try to grow out with acrylics. Nails that I was ashamed of. Now I seriously cannot believe that my own natural nails are this long.
Updating this blog has held me accountable for my actions as a former nail biter and for that I am very proud. You can track my progress for stopping biting my nails by clicking here. I love that I have nails that I never thought I'd have. Trying to stop biting after a quarter of a century of doing it was not, is not, an easy task. To all you other nail biters out there I'd like to say there is hope!
Sometimes I revert back to old habits and my nails will be short. It's not something that I like to have happen but stopping old habits is a very long process.
When I'm not polishing the tiny canvasses on the ends of my digits, I am a product development engineer at a research and development facility and enjoy playing with my cat and reading.
