You should have no trouble with gel nails professionally applied. They put an acrylic tip on your own nail to increase its length and then apply a gel which is hardened under UV light. You only need to have the ones you use for picking done. Of course they grow quite quickly so you have to have the gel re-applied every 3-4 weeks.
Amethyst Nails here in Gainsborough are well used to guitar and banjo pickers and I'm sure it will be the same in your town!
