Hi! You told us you didn’t have SnapChat. Or that you can’t use it very often. Or that you use your parents’ accounts.
So we listened! We are now posting SnapChat Stories on our website. We hope you enjoy watching them!
Actually, we’re talking about fingernails, not toenails! But Mercedes was really funny chewing her toenails in the Disgusting Habits Video. If you haven’t seen that one, you definitely need to check it out!
Fingernail biting (as opposed to toe-nail biting) is a common problem.
In fact Giselle used to bite her nails! You may think there’s nothing you can do to stop. But we have 5 tips that can help you break the habit just like Giselle did!
You might be able to break the habit if you keep them short for a while. If there’s nothing to bite you’ll get out of the habit of chewing them!
If you have your nails painted, and you love how they look, that just might stop you from chewing. You won’t want to ruin your manicure!
They make bad tasting nail polish just for this problem! Get some bitter nail polish and paint your nails with it. It tastes gross, so you won’t WANT to chew your nails!
Find something else to do to keep your hands busy. If your fingers are doing something else, you’ll be less likely to want to chew your nails. There’s lots of things you could do!
Ask your parents for help. They might be willing to give you a reward to help you break the habit. You could work the details out with your parents, but here’s an example of how that could work.
1 Week: No nail chewing – you get out of one chore that week.
2 Weeks: You get to stay up a half hour extra one night.
3 Weeks: You get to have some new nail polish or nail art supplies.
4 Weeks: You’ve made it a whole month with no nail chewing! That’s huge. By this time you should be enjoying those nails! That alone is a big reward. But maybe your parents will want to reward you even more with something like a toy or a book – maybe even the new GEM Sisters book Pup Napped!
GEMS: If you’re trying to break the nail biting habit, we hope these ideas help! All three of us love to have our nails looking pretty. It’s just fun! Here’s a picture of Mercedes nails. Don’t they look cute?
GEMS: Let us know in the comments if you like to paint your nails!
XOXO: Giselle, Evangeline, and Mercedes!

We LOVE pizza! Do you?

Smiles are infectious! You share a smile with someone, and they feel good, and pass that smile on to someone else. When we are kind to someone, it not only makes them feel good, it makes us feel better too! Here are 10 ways to be kind to others. Let’s all pick some things from this list, and see if we can spread a smile this week!
You never know, it might be the only smile they get that day! Be Friendly! Introduce yourself to someone at school that you don’t know. Strike up a conversation with them. Be excited to hear what they have to say!
There are lots of girls and boys that don’t have money for nice clothes to wear to school. Just think how that would make them smile to have a new cute outfit. They would love to have some of the nice things that are too small for you now. You can donate your gently used clothes to charity, or give them to someone you know that would love to have them!
Make Get Well Cards for anyone who is sick. This will cheer them up and make them feel better to know that someone is thinking of them.
