Ayanna Williams Guinness World Record Longest Nails Cuts Them After 30yrs
Ayanna Williams, who lives in Houston, Texas, broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest fingernails in 2017, when they measured nearly 19 feet long.
She finally cut her nails over the weekend, after nearly 30 years of not cutting them.
Before getting them cut, she measured it one final time and it was 24 ft, 0.7 in.
It took her three to four bottles of nail polish and over 20 hours to do her manicure prior to cutting her nails.
Ayanna Williams had her nails cut at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas, where an electric rotary tool was used for her first nail cut since the early 1990s.
“With or without my nails, I will still be the queen,” Williams said, according to Guinness. “My nails don’t make me, I make my nails!”
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! will display Williams’ trimmed nails at its museum in Orlando, Florida.
Williams said she plans to only grow her nails about six inches.
