I don't think it's a detriment at all. Right now I am doing a two-month stint with a Deep Purple/Rainbow tribute while their regular guitar player recovers from surgery (which is why I've been kinda scarce here lately). I'm going out and doing those shows and then sitting down with my classical and it's a pretty seamless transition. The only issue is that I'm playing stuff Ritchie Blackmore was on and trying to keep it as real as I can and he did a bunch of stuff with his fingers. I find with nails on an electric I have to hold my hand at kind of a funny angle to fingerpick. That is however a minor problem and one that wasn't hard to solve.
