Finger nails breaking..

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I have a big problem - I'm a guitar player (no, that is not the problem ) and the thing is that my fingernails are breaking every time they are longer than 3 milimeters over the finger. I need them a bit longer for playing. What can I do to protect nails from breaking?

Ok, ok. You can get nail hardener. It really does work. Cheap, find it in any drug store or even grocery store with the rest of the nail polish and such.


I can't use picks because I'm playing classics so I need to use all 5 fingers on the right hand. I will look for nail hardener. Thx.


I have seen these little metal ring thingies in music shops, they are a bit like fake nails u can wear for picking with ur fingers instead of using your nails. They just slip on around the end of ur fingers and look like u have little claws...pretty kool


I have those but can't use them on concert playing classics. It's ok when playing some harder stuff
