    How this nail biter suddenly got longer nail beds

    I'd stopped biting my finger nails down to the quick, but for years my finger nails still looked horrible - the nailbeds were still short and stubby and I always had a grimy layer trapped under the nail. Plus they were so uneven - one or two fingers had escaped being bitten so much as the others and still had the OK-length nailbeds that I'd been born with. Others looked like I'd trapped my nail in a door. Cuticle-pushing didn't sort it out. I wanted the nailbeds to get longer at the tip. But nothing happened. THEN, one day, I discovered pottery. And making bowls on the wheel. It involved pressing the tips of my fingers into clay hard for minutes on end. And, hey presto, my shortest nailbeds are getting noticeably longer.
