Biting nails on Shabbat


Rabbi Moshe Leib Halberstadt

Tishrei 4, 5770
I understand that it is against the halacha to bite nails on shabbat or take off skin. I want to do the right thing but it is such an ingrained habit and hard to stop. What should I do?
Drugstores have special products to stop thumb sucking or nail biting that have an unpleasant taste, and by putting some of it on your nails it should solve the problem.
