Mavala

Stop

Item #: 2246961

Nail biting is a nervous habit, which can rapidly become uncontrollable.
 
It has a bitter yet harmless taste and the appearance of clear enamel. Helps break the nail biting habit and thumb sucking. Works for children (more than 3 years old) and adults. To use without or over your nail polish. Also recommended for children but not under 3 years old, as their taste buds are not fully developed and they might get used to the bitter taste.
Apply a coat over the entire nail (or polish) and allow to dry. Repeat the application every two days. Continue the treatment until nail biting is ended. Of course, before each re-application, remove Mavala Stop with Nail Polish Remover. Precaution: Never wash hands immediately after application.

    Comments about Mavala Stop:

    I have been biting my nails for 18 years and I finally got sick of it because of how dirty hands are so I had to take action. SO I tried a ton of no bite polishes that I would just get used to and chew anyway but this stuff is so awful I actually have to spit and eat something go get the taste out. Its not so great with finger foods but its worth it in the long run

      Comments about Mavala Stop:

      I used this product for myself and my toddler because he bites his nails. For me it was very effective because the nasty taste was in my fingers and nails everytime I wanted to bite them.For my toddler though it was effective but he couldn't eat finger food because the taste was in his fingers and he wanted to throw up. Overall, it's a great product.

        Comments about Mavala Stop:

        worked GREAT for my 4 year old daughter! (a thumb sucker since 3 months old) It was suggested by her dentist to finally put a stop to the habit, to avoid it developing into her youth and teenage years! My sister saw this product in her dentist office, and after reading reviews, I had to try it out! It was a first rough week for my littleone, but after that tough week, she has not sucked her thumb! I am so proud of her, and I remind her what a big girl she is now. I still apply the product, only to avoid a "relapse", since there is plenty still in the bottle - a little goes a long way :)

          Comments about Mavala Stop:

          My 4 year old has sucked on her fingers when she was tired since she was a baby. We even found out she sucked on them at night. We tried so many different methods to stop it and nothing worked. My daughter and I were both frustrated that nothing worked to help her stop. THIS PRODUCT WORKS! The nail polish is clear and the taste is awful! Since she has worn it I have not seen her fingers in her mouth, even at night. The only bad thing is try not to eat finger foods when wearing this, because as soon as your nails get in your mouth you get that awful taste.

            I bought this for my son to help him to not bite his nails. It does really work, he is barely biting them now.

            My 3 year old daughter would not stop biting her nails until we found this amazing product. Mavala has a biter taste so that she will not bite her nails or the nail beds anymore. Now, her nails and longer and stronger! The reason we had to find a solution to her biting her nails was due to a terrible infection of a nail bed that was extremely infected. I was a little apprehensive about the cost but this product was worth it!

              Great product. My nails look great. Mavala Stop gives clear polished look. Needs to be reapplied every 2-3 days depends on how often you cook and/or wash dishes and etc.

                Comments about Mavala Stop:

                I was a nail biter for as long as I can remember until I was about 21 or 22, and while my mom had tried to paint my nails with different solutions throughout the years, mavala STOP was the ONLY thing that tasted nasty enough to actually keep me from trying to bite my nails. It tastes horrible, and it leaves a really nasty aftertaste. I always keep a bottle on me in case I get tempted to rebound, and I'm on my third bottle again (which broke, hence I'm ordering another one :-) My nails were so bitten down that my mom was worried I had messed them up for good, so who'd have thought that now I'm the one with the big nail polish collection? If you're a nail biter and want to stop, I suggest spoiling yourself with a care package really good nail strengthener, a good hand lotion + cuticle oil and mavala stop (and in a few weeks, add nail polish :D)

                Would I recommend this to a friend? Absolutely. In fact, I've bought it for a couple of friends that were nail biters. If I were a beauty blogger or youtuber, I'd brag about this product for FREE because it's that incredibly amazing, and I honestly thank this product for having beautiful nails today.
