I cut my left hand nails every 3 days or so. My right hand nails are longer, for fingerpicking.
Need fashion advice?

A couple of millimetres at the most, I always have them really low but not completely bitten off.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

as short as possible, otherwise it becomes difficult to play violin.

I don't cut the ones on my right hand since I need them for my playing, I keep them about 3-5 mm long. The left hand never gets more than 2mm at best.

just got them done again yesterday, so this is mine at their shortest:



i'll usually get them trimmed, filed and polished every 2-4 weeks when i get my acrylics refilled, it just depends on how long they get and if they start to get in the way of things.

Between 1-3mm of white. I have a need to cut them smooth and round though, none of that uneven crap for me. :S

Lots of fingerpicking?


Yeah I try to keep them long so steel strings don't wear them down, I'm actually thinking of getting professionally done press on nails.

get a coating of acrylic over your nail. it thickens and hardens them right up so they won't break or wear down easily at all.

But don't use nail polish remover to get rid of it for the night like many people do, the harm to the nails from it is bigger than the benefit from the acrylic.
Just thought I'd add that.

Hell, why do I know so much chick stuff?

look at the picture, would a guy dye his fingernails pink? Those hands don't look manly either

and acrylic won't let the nails breath making them very weak. I don't like it, once it's gone your nails are messed up.

I was rather talking about me than about divid3d. I already gathered that she was a chick somehow.

EDIT: Nah, once it's gone because you used the polish remover they're a mess, but if you let it wear off with time, the nails should be fine. From what I know, anyways.

That's what I do now, but after splitting the nail on my ring finger 6 months ago and still getting too much wear I'm seriously thinking about going the fake nail route, which is actually what a lot of bluegrass/country players do.

Plus I didn't learn picking with nail instead of a pick and all to put new artificial stuff over them, it's like sex without a condom - best there is.

I have always wondered: What is that thing in your avatar Dreadnought? Or rather: where is it from? Some comic/video game/cartoon or something?
