Having owned guitarplayernails.com for over 25 years now, we've been through it all. We know what works and what doesn't ... If you want the proper standards for tone and feel, and you don't want to limit your dexterity, then don't waste your $ on these. Pretty expensive too.
For the record, I disagree with Dave almost 100% on everything else he says about guitar playing but ... his GPN method absolutely does a great job. I unreservedly reccomend the system to anyone who struggles with their natural nails.
I used them consistently for many months at a time and over several years with no adverse effects - the tones one is capable of producing are easily
as wide ranging as those produced by natural nails (much, much better than you might have heard on the promotional video examples) and, with just a little practice, they are easy to work with and apply.
Alaska-piks ... I wouldn't use those to pick my nose (and yes, I have tried them for guitar playing).
