Hiya
Here is a pic of Sams which shows how to pre tailer a tip for bitten nails.
Also will help to reduce the length of the contact area so no more than half the length of the nail bed is covered by the tip.
Hope this helps.

Saddling the tip is when you take part of the 'tip side wall' away (depending on which side the bulbous sidewall of the fingernail is) :rolleyes: ; it basically stops the tip digging into the skin at the side wall so that it is more comforatble for the cannibal. This hopefully stops them trying to pick at it in the long run!! HTH's!!
