Q & As

MAVALA Stop Nail Treatment, 5ml 4.8 5 4 4
Product worked for my daughter Used product on my daughter for just 5 days. She has stopped biting nails now. 02 September 2014
Brilliant This is the only thing that stops my daughter sucking her finger! It really does taste disgusting yet is easy to apply and quick to dry - just like a clear nail varnish so suitable for school. 23 July 2014
Tastes vile - perfect! Works very effectively. My 6 year old has now stopped biting his nails. The taste is truly awful and lingers. Seems to better than the Stop n Gro variety 19 November 2012
Excellent product If you want to improve the condition of your nails, this is the product. The nasty taste of the polish means that you'll think twice before biting your nails again. 08 February 2012
