DADGBE Guitarist's nails (again) (19) RE: Guitarist's nails (again) 25 Aug 06


Nails have always been a problem for me. These days, I use a hardener made by the OPI company called Nail Envy. If you can get past that atrocious name, they make a matte version that works better than any other I've tried. 2 coats seems to work best.

For emergency situations and times when I just need longer, stronger nails, I use

These glue-on products take a bit of fussing to get right but work great and feel just like a set of perfect nails. They're great on nylon or steel. I use them over the hardener. That way, a daub of polish remover takes the glue-ons off easily and without damage to the nails.
Fixed the link. You need the "a href" in there, with the space. JC
