Nail biters can finally kick their notoriously bad habit to the curb with the technology Wearables manicure invented by two students from the Art Center College of Design in California.

Students Jenny Rodenhouse and Kristina Ortega cleverly came up with the concept of infusing digital sensors into nail art to help chronicle nail-bitters from constantly chewing on their fingers. The tiny sensors are glued onto the nails like regular jewels decals you can get at a nail salon. The sensors are able to track a person's behavioral techniques and send them customizable reminders like, 'Stop biting your nails!' Rodenhouse and Ortega are looking for backers to help them open their very own pop-up nail shop full of "technology technicians" ready to give sensor manicures.
