Ha!! I do it too. You can get fake ones off amazon or a larger chemist - they should last a couple of days. When mine were really bad I used to get acrylic extensions welded on. They looked fantastic. Had the added bonus of being too hard to pick off so got me out of the habit of picking them while watching TV (kind of...).
I have no tiny toenails to speak of because I pick them so much! The rest of my toenails were shortish but ok, I sometimes get acrylic big toes for the summer. On the little toes I just paint the skin and if anyone has noticed they've never said.
I paint the skin on my little toe too as there is no proper nail there now. Glad I'm not the only one! I pick my fingernails when I'm stressed and then get going on the toes when I've run out of nails. Minging.
