Gunnar, I'm glad you asked. Yes, I have tried toe nail biting. However, for a variety of reasons I gave it up. First, the taste was not all that great. I found that if I chewed them first thing after my shower they taste was manageable. However, if they were chewed at the end of a long day, they were WAY too salty/putrid for my tastes.Second, the disposal of the bitten nail end was a problem. If you accidently swallow a fingernail, no harm no foul. However, if you accidently swallow a toe nail there is the possibility of a punctured intestine, etc.Third, I found access problems. Clients were taken aback when I would remove my wingtip and socks in the middle of a consultation and then proceed to chew. This caused me to have less clients.Fourth, and finally, was the area around my mouth. Toenails are much tougher and sharper than fingernails, which lead to cuts around my mouth and on my lips. There was also that rash that started right after I started chewing my toenails. It had to be treated with an atheletic foot fungicide, not a pleasant experience.All in all I would not recommend this practice, although there may me some that have found it to be a rewarding and fulfilling experience.BiteLowLookLong
