Show Some Nuts

Ok here is the description of my issue. The High E, B, and G string have a noticeable "tick" sound every now and then. Mainly on string bends. It also seems like these 3 srings are just a tad out of tune more often than the low strings. I feel the ting sound is being caused by "nut binding".

 

What say the experienced?

 

Thanks

I bought some 2H (not sure of US eqivalent, the 'hard' type) refill lead for a retractable pencil, from an arts/craft shop. A bit fragile rubbing direct into the nut grove but you can always grind it up with a pestle & mortar, and apply with a thin model-paint brush. It's a lot cheaper than graphite gel!!!
