Classical Guitar Nail Care Kits
The perfect nail shape for playing classical guitar will depend on your particular playing style and is also a matter of personal preference. You will have to experiment to produce the best results but whatever shape works well for you, your nails will require consistent care and attention in order to maintain that shape and to keep your nails in the best possible condition.
How to Shape Nails for Classical Guitar
Your nails will be much easier to care for and shape if they are healthy and strong and the easiest way to ensure that they are in tip top condition is to eat a balanced diet that contains the required nutrients for strong nails. Proteins, calcium, silica, magnesium, zinc and vitamins are all crucial in maintaining healthy nails.
Once your nails have reached a suitable length you can begin shaping them. Don’t cut your mails with scissors or clippers. It is far better to achieve and maintain the right length and shape by using a file or nail cloth file such as the Luthier Cloth Nail File in our collection here at the London Guitar Studio. Buff and smooth your nails using our TLP nail paper. Nail files and paper will also correct uneven portions of the nail and the minor damage that inevitably occurs from time to time. With practice you will become proficient at filing your nails for classical guitar.
You can protect and strengthen your nails further and improve their overall appearance by taking advantage of the Nail Repair Microcell 2000 range from the London Guitar Studio which features the perfect products for coating and nourishing your nails and cuticles.
