Is it possible to develop disfigured nail growth from repeatedly biting and picking whole nails off with bleeding. My nails only grow on tip of finger?

In brief: Yes

You have likely damaged the nail beds, which is where the nail growth comes from. Damage to these can result in disfigured nails.
This is usually permanent, but see your doctor to be sure. Good luck!
