A lady from Texas, United States has been crowned ‘woman with the title of the world’s longest fingernails and in absolute they measure more than 18 feet long. The long nails is associated with Ayanna Williams, a nail artist from Houston, Texas.
Her nails, each of which is just shy of two foot long, have earned her a place in the Guinness World Records 2018 Edition. Having spent the greater part of her grown-up life developing her nails, over 23 years, she was first motivated by a companion and plans to keep growing them.
She has also revealed that the most challenging thing about having extremely long fingernails, which can take up to one week to paint, is pulling up her trousers. While she’s constantly getting lots of attention for her nails, and knows she is rather unique, her friends and family think it’s quite normal.
In order to take care of her nails, Ayanna uses anti-bacterial soap and a nail brush to clean them daily. And to help them grow, she regularly applies hardener and a thin layer of acrylic.
‘To let my children know that anything they want to accomplish can be done. It takes courage, discipline and patience but it can be accomplished,’ said Ayanna on her reason for applying for the record.
