Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

If one bites his or her nails whilst fasting, does it break it? (Can I have the answer for 1-When the nail is swallowed and 2-The nail is not swallowed)

In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Biting the nails itself does not break the fast, however swallowing them would break the fast.

Notwithstanding, biting the nails is a vile, reprehensible act especially as there can be filth under the nails. One should endeavour to break this habit. Speak to your Local GP, who can advise accordingly.
