If you're like me, an old dog fingernail player needing a new trick, these Fred Kelly Freedom picks might be what you're looking for. You can achieve very similar tone and volume, and retain a lot of your technique in terms of how you attack the strings. There is also something to be said for consistency. With natural or applied fingernails, you are always adjusting to variable length and condition. Fingerpicks are a constant.

Two caveats:

I found they work better if you wrap some ¼" waterproof bandaging tape around them. Get it next to the bandaids at the store. This is not to adhere the pick to your finger. The pick deflects from the string and the gap in the bottom of the pick expands. They tend to wobble around too much, affecting tone and volume. The bandage tape fixes that pretty good and stays sticky, so it's easily repositionable.

And, don't expect a perfect result right out of the box. You gotta experiment, practice and get used to them. It was worth while for me. I hope you'll buy some, too. Otherwise, they'll stop making them and I'll have to find Plan C.

Like many aging fingerstyle guitarists, I have found my nails are not what they were when I was 20, or even 30. I had tried many other products, including aLaska Picks. Everything was a major compromise to the point that they were barely worth it. The Fred Kelly Freedom Picks were not available in any music store in my area, but from what I had read from reviews, they were my salvation. So I ordered them. They were a bit pricey to guess on fitment, but I bought the large and they were the correct size for my fingers. However, no amount of boiling or modification would make them anything other than what they were: unplayable lumps of plastic on my fingertips. Maybe it's an aggressive playing style, but I don't think so. I fit them properly, but because of the way fingers seem to be (but likely just mine), there was some up/down hinge-like movement along the line of the finger. I couldn't compensate or correct for it, so there was just a loose feel which felt sloppy and was distracting. However, I did stop that movement with duct tape, but that totally defeats the purpose of removable picks. But once I did get them to a playable disposition, I found that they sounded beyond mushy on the nylon strings. Noticeably, finger-nails-on-chalkboard obvious. They could fit to the point where I didn't even notice them, but the sound alone made these something I would never use. Everybody seems to be very happy with them, so I may just be the odd one that this product wouldn't work for. And that bummed me out, because I was counting on them.

          The sizing is not great. The picks are well constructed and functional. I ordered a medium and it is huge. So I had to make modifications just to get it to stay on my finger. I wouldn't buy it again. I will try to use it, but so far not working out too well.

                        Problematic issue with strumming re right pointer-fingernail. These picks work well. I use a small. This size fits tight, but wear them fine for two-hours of jam.

                          I've been a finger style guitar player for 61 years using natural fingernails and/or acrylics. The acrylics have ruined my natural fingernails, but I'm not ready to quit playing yet, so a substitute for natural fingernails is required for me to continue playing. Fred Kelly finger picks have worked best for me up to now and I expect they will continue. The feel is obviously not quite the same as natural fingernails and calls for some practice to accustom yourself to their use, but they are about as close to natural fingernails in both feel and sound as I've found at this time. They are also tough enough, in my opinion, to withstand some pretty aggressive playing techniques and appear to have some good lasting qualities.

                              These don't work for me. They feel awkward and clumsy, and the picking edge is too thick for my technique. I'll have to continue having acrylic nails on my thumb, index and ring fingers for dinner picking guitar.
