  • Features
    • MAVALA Stop is a harmless, transparent formula with a distinct bitter taste.
    • It can be used alone or over color.
    • It will stop you from putting fingers to your mouth and biting your nails.
    • Also recommended for children who suck their thumbs.

    Directions

    Apply one coat of MAVALA Stop on the entire nail and allow it to dry for one minute. Repeat the application every two days until you have broken the habit of biting your nails.

    After 10 days, your nail should have grown normally but may require strengthening! We would then recommend our nail hardener MAVALA Scientifique and Nail Cream to complete the beauty of your "new" nails.

  • Works Great! 5 Star Rating
    This stuff tastes BAD! and lasts for days.I used this product by applying it when my 3 1/2 year old son was asleep at night so he would not associate me or the application of the polish with the ensuing bad taste and his subsequent revocation of his favorite pastime. As far as he knows, his thumb all of a sudden started to taste bad. Never any verbal conversation about the taste or quitting thumbsucking. After the first application, he put his thumb in his mouth once or twice out of habit, but soon changed his mind. From the second application on, ZERO thumbsucking. I applied it four times (on day one, day three, day seven, and then about ten days after that for good measure). When sneaking into his room for the last application I saw him roll over in bed and while asleep the thumb instinctively go for the mouth and abruptly stop and be pulled away while he was still asleep. He didnt have to be awake to remember how BAD this stuff tastes. I did apply it that on last time for good measure but I dont think I will need to again. As a dentist, I was becoming very concerned about the changes I saw in hs teeth and jaws because of thumbsucking. I am very happy to have found this product, and at his age I know stopping the habit now will allow his teeth to relapse to their normal position and continue with normal jaw development.

    I have a five year old daughter that sucks her thumb when she goes to sleep at night. This habbit that she had only happens when she is tired. Since I have been putting this product on her nails she has not put her thumb in her mouth and she is very proud of herself. Thanks for a great product

    My 5 yr old daughter has been sucking her thumb since she was 6 months old when we lost her favorite pacifier. I used Mavala stop the first night I received it, which was early December 04. She has not sucked her thumb since, it worked over night. Ive recommended this product to several co-workers.

    Excellent thing. I think that nail biting is a psycological issue. So every time than your brain gives you a signal for nail biting, and you start doing it a bitter taste immidiately stops you. Worth this money.

    This stuff is wonderful. Works like a miracle! My son stopped sucking his thumb on the first day. I bought another brand at a local grocery store and he would still suck his thumb. STOP tastes so bad that he couldnt bare to put his thumb back in his mouth. I highly recommend this product.

    I had many years of short, ugly nails because of biting. I tried other products but nothing worked. Mavala Stop for nail biting is the only product that has worked for me. It has a bitter taste that kept me from biting. I Love this product. I finally have grown my nails! Thank you so much!!!!

    My 5 year old daughter was a huge thumb-sucker!! We had tried everything except the mouth appliance. Someone suggested Mavala Stop to us & we decided to try it before going back to the dentist! Within a few weeks she was cured! She really wanted to stop & this just reminded her everytime she tasted it that she couldnt! We have suggested this product to everyone we know with a thumb-sucker! Thanks!!
