Pre-Formed Nails

Pre-Formed Nails

Most artificial nails don't have very good tone. After experimenting over the years with many different nails, we found a few that sound pretty good. These nails are the best we've found. They're very easy to apply and to remove. Because of their sound and ease of use, many guitarists use these nails on a regular basis. Translucent. Easily trimmed if needed for customizable fit. Please see our "Helpful Tips" page for more information on our pre-formed nails. Many sizes to choose. Our extra large (19/32) makes a great thumb nail.
 






Player's Nails

Player's Nails

In the tradition of the original Player's Nails, these are clear ping pong balls. For years guitarists have used ping pong balls for nails. The problem is that when you add pigment, as they do with white and colored ping pong balls, they get mushy. In addition, you can't see what's going on under the nail, which is very important. We highly recommend that you spray this material with a bit of nail glue dryer before application. Very easy to work with. Apply these correctly and you'll have great tone and feel.

The thinner the super glue, the stronger it is, and the better it will wick into tight areas.
