If you are comfortable using the thumb-pick and are happy with the sound, then no one can tell you it's wrong.

In my opinion, if are getting good sound, then you are doing it right.

I am not sure why you "can't play with" your thumb nail. If it's not long enough, then let it grow. :-)

Perhaps it's the way you are attacking the string when playing with the thumb. Try turning your wrist so your thumb is resting on the string at a 90 degree angle (or something close to that).

Feel free to post a video here so others can see what you are talking about. That could be helpful.
