In brief: Painting

First find out why she bites her nails, is it habit, nervousness, anxiety.
Using thumbx on nails creates a bad taste when she does, or you can manicure and paint her nails so they look pretty and she may not want to bite them. Talk with her about germs that enter her mouth each time she bites.
