Quite the player! New to me! Thanks for posting.
But it looks like she at least uses a thumbnail. It's hard to see her other fingers.
Just hearing her, I wouldn't be able to discern that she is "nailless"

My thought exactly.
Plus, her technique, similar to Yamandu Costa, is more of a flamenco/Latino world rather than pure classical.

The words “classical” and “professional” are really deceiving. Everywhere. In the world of guitar even more.
I could argue for hours that there are other body shapes that have already made it into the realm of “classical”.

The d-28 being a fine example of a classical BG guitar

I just checked out current Virginia Luque website, and the article I remember from a few years ago where she discusses her "nailless" playing style has disappeared. I speculate it would become annoying or exhausting to be continually asked about the issue, when she never really "pushed" it on the guitar world (aside from offering stellar performances.) Here's a bio that at least mentions her "no nails" style, if the link works.
