John Martyn reportedly used dental cement to build up his nails.

I've watched John Renbourn cut up ping-pong (table tennis) balls and glue them to his nails.

The rec.music.maker.guitar.acoustic newsgroup used to discuss this endlessly - I seem to remember agricultural "Horn and Hoof" cream being recommended.
