Stop

0.3 oz 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.

Didn't work

    Comments about Mavala Stop:

    I'm really upset to pay this amount for such a tiny bottle, only to have it not work. My son is almost 4. I got him to stop sucking his thumb previously, but due to an illness, he took it back up. I put gloves on him, but the moment he wakes up, he takes it off to suck his thumb. I put this on him, and found him sucking his thumb a few hours later. Whatever the taste is, it didn't bother him at all.

    Comments about Mavala Stop:

    The bitter taste definitely reminds you to stop nail biting. When nail starts growth you will be reinforced to break the habit. Pricey,but worked for me so worth it.

    Comments about Mavala Stop:

    Mavala STOP has a long lasting disturbing taste and is equally long lasting on the nails. It will NOT burn your eyes! (Like other products I've tried!) I would not feed a toddler or yourself finger foods while wearing this product. Even mindless nibbling is quickly curbed! STOP it now for a healthier future!

        We used this on our 2.5 year old to quit her thumb sucking. It works! It does get on her food when she's eating so that part stinks...... She even asks for us to put it back on when it wears off! She does not want to suck her thumb as bad as we want her to quit!

          This product works! I've tried everything to get my 9 year old to stop sucking get thumb- thum (terrible product DO NOT BUY), bribery (disney, ear piercing, ski trip), to no more desserts. I only had to put it on her three days and she stopped. One year later, she still does not suck her thumb.

          Comments about Mavala Stop:

          I have been biting my nails since I would say about since I was 7 years old, so biting my nails has been a VERY bad habit, I don't ever realize I'm doing it. I've tried multiple other stop biting polishes but nothing compares to this. It has a very strong taste that will last in your mouth & make you regret you even thought about biting your nails. I am very pleased with this product!

          Comments about Mavala Stop:

          I started using this product after a friend of mine used it to curb her daughters thumb sucking. We started using and after a few days, it has curbed it for my little one as she doesn't like the taste at all. I'm hoping it'll create a habit and I'll be able to stop using it.

            Comments about Mavala Stop:

            I used this on my 3 year old who had obsession with sucking his fingers to the point he had ulcers on his fingers. He had been unable to cut the habit on his own. The same day I used this on him he stopped and has not gone back to it since. I only use it once a day because he doesn't even try to suck his fingers anymore. Highly recommend.
