Woman Who Held The World Record For The Longest Nails Finally Got Them Cut After 30 Years!
From making your hands look pretty to sometimes even scratching an uncontrollable itch, opening a tin can to making a screeching noise on the blackboard, one would say there are quite a few uses of nails in the human body. I for one, often use them to add a pop of color and glamour to my life, but little did I fathom, someone out there would use them to create a world record. We are talking about Ayanna Williams of Houston, Texas who used her talons to break the Guinness World Record for having the longest nails.
Back in 2017, when Ayanna first broke the record, her nails measured up to 19 ft. Considering I am 5 ft and 4 inches tall, one could assume that her nails were almost three times my height. It used to take Ayanna almost 2 bottles of nail polish and close to 20 hours, just to get them manicured..
4 years later now, as she decided to get them cut, her nails’ final measurement came as long as 24 feet! Almost the size of a bus, or two thirds of an electrical pole, her talons are unimaginably long. However, after growing them for as long as 30 years, Ayanna heaved a sigh of relief as she got them cut.

She had to get the task done at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas, where an electric rotary tool was used since she hadn’t chopped them since the early 1990s, Ayanna now only plans on growing her nails upto six inches. She shared, “With or without my nails, I will still be the queen. My nails don’t make me, I make my nails!” Damn right!
Meanwhile, her trimmed talons will now be seen displayed at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum in Orlando, Florida. After years of having trouble in doing even the simple things or running basic errands like washing dishes, making her bed, Ayanna says her next aim in life is to encourage and inspire her next ‘ history-making nail enthusiast’ to opt for the title with the Guinness World Record.
