Thread Name: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
Subject: RE: Help: Fingernails vs. Fingerpicks
I have posted my recommendation of acrylics so many times I am not going to repeat myself, but one thing I remember is that when I played with my natural nails (which were actually quite strong in their own right), most of the breakages I had occurred while opening car doors. So I got into the habit of always opening doors with my left hand.

With acrylic nails. of course, you can open doors, pocket-knives, cans of beer or whatever with absolutely no risk of breakage.
