My guitar and ukulele life has been transformed. I can now fingerpick in a way I could never do before. I have exceptionally weak and useless fingernails - they can bend and break in a strong breeze. When I play for long periods they wear away and leave my fingers covered in a blood smeared mash that hurts for days. All this until I went to a nail bar! For just two British pounds per finger I now have bionic gel covered battle-picking fingers that sound and feel so different. I'd tried a lot of things before from special diets to some unsavoury old time remedies and none of them worked. But now with a brush of gel and a few seconds of UV hardening I'm off on a whole new picking adventure. Does anyone else have any stories about fingernails that need to be tougher?
