I am looking for a key chain or ring that is easy to get keys on and off without breaking or injuring one's nails/fingers, accommodates 10 or so keys, and ideally fits into one's pocket easily. Anyone have some contenders?

I think this is very much a matter of taste.

The very best keyring I've ever used is the random-access multi-ring system like this one, Kikkerland Super Key Ring with 5 Removable Rings. I own several of these, and load them up with different tools & keys. Easy to customize. I've seen (and bought) the same design branded by different companies: Columbia Sportswear, Roots, Coast Cutlery.

Another option is the Nite Ize KeyRack Key Holder with S-Biners.

Fishing line swivel clips & some itty bitty split rings make pretty great, sturdy, easily customizable rigs. From small brass swivel clips to big stainless ball-bearing swivel clips, there are a lot of ways to customize. I've used a 1/2" ring for car keys, another for house keys, another for work keys, each to its own swivel clip on a central tiny ring. Lays flat too!

here's something that i use from time to time (not everyday): aircraft cable rings

I use standard issue split rings, but your local hardware store probably has some small screw-gate carabiner type things, check the aisle with mailbox hardware and signage and such.

Small carabiners. Keys will even lay flat. Or, get a small cord and just tie a knot.

I use the same aircraft cable ring as itsrob mentioned and love it.
