Just thought maybe taking her in to get a manicure, and tell her she can't bite them it will take off the polish. :)

I have heard people putting hot sauce on them, I just left it alone both of my finger nail biters out grew it. Actually it made life easier my other twos nails grow like crazy, Heck my 15 year old has always has strong healthy nails I have to make him cut them at least twice a week.

You say a million times..."get your fingers out of your mouth."
and freeze some teething rings. Give her a frozen teething ring to chew on instead.
Frozen teething rings helps my son. (27 months)
Usually he does this when he's bored...so if we get him involved in coloring or counting, he will stop.
Do you notice what time of the day she does it? Is she doing it when she's getting hungry...or sleepy...bored maybe?
