Flat pick between thumb and forefinger, short nails on the remaining fingers for fingerpicking in a hybrid fashion.

Shorter nails seem to be more hardy and resist breaking, chipping or splintering much more than long ones... plus, I love the tone when there's just a bit of flesh along with the short nails...
