Changing my Nail Game with Acrylic Powder “Dip” Nails

I chew my nails and cuticles. I’ve tried everything to stop over the years but the only thing for me that worked long-term was getting acrylic tips on my nails. This made the nail impossible to chew, and the nail bed thicker so I can’t get to my cuticles with…
