✅ Helped a lot

I tried getting a manicure right after I realized that I stopped biting my nails for like a week due to my braces. When my nail and cuticle area look neat, I don't have the urge to bite/pick them. As this can be an expensive solution for a student, I just learned to do it at home, bought some basic tools. Any time I see any imperfection, I fix it with those tools instead of with my teeth.

✅ Helped a lot

I went to a nail salon, the lady didn't speak english, and she didn't understand that I wanted help with my specific nailbiting problem, not just a regular visit like any other client. Eventually I got her to understand I didn't want too look like I "had my nails done", I just wanted them to look natural, so she put on natural color polish. The edges started peeling slightly after a day. Most people would probably leave it alone, but those peeled edges were a major trigger for me and I ripped it all off. The second time I went to a salon, it was an english speaking nail technician. Together we came up with a custom solution that took into account the current state of my nails, as well as my specific triggers. And that worked really well for months, although it was quite expensive over time as I had to go often to keep them in perfect shape. Any imperfections led to a biting spree.
