Finish on a high tempo with suspense built on result going either way. In this connection, I remember the cricket match when I was in college.
It was last ball and Pakistan needed a boundary (four) to win and Javed Miandad hit sixer. That was a real nail biting finish.

The result could have gone either way.Winning a cricket match by by run after the last ball is bowled is an example.

Whenever a person is in great tension or stress, he or she is automatically led to bite the finger nails. This is a natural phenomenon. When in a race or match the result could go either way, and the spectators are tense they also are often led to bite the finger nails. That is the nail biting finish!
