Biting one’s fingernails

Hi, I'm here to share idioms / expressions : 1) "Biting one’s fingernails" can suggest being nervous about something 2) There is also another sentence in which we find again a story of fingers: "to regret bitterly" when we'd better bite fingers to have done something we regret. Maybe, someone could correct me if there are others ways o express these two feelings. - nervousness - regret if you know some idiom to express : to mope, the worry, being anxious... i'm very interested. Regards
