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...
"A very little bit of grace,
in my beggar's palm.
A slow sense of self worth diminishing;
It doesn't feel good to steal.
but it never feels good to kneel,
with no place to belong,
with very little grace in my beggar's palm... "
