well you know of course it is probably out of habit. Try having her to wear good tape or gloves when she watches tv for a while. Maybe that will slow the habit and help her to stop. For the nose, i can't really think of anything right now. Does her nose feel irritated to her, hurting, or itchy?
about the nails, she might have like a nervous tick or something. Is she a nervous type child or easy going? I hope some of these idea help, if I think of anything else I'll let you know. Good luck..
