Ayanna Williams had been growing her nails for over 25 years but she finally decided it was time for the ultimate manicure.
Measured at a final length of 733.55cm (24ft 0.7in), Ayanna holds the current record for the longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) - a record title she has held since 2017.
Dr. Allison Readinger of Trinity Vista Dermatology in Forth Worth, Texas, USA, was the dermatologist in charge of the cutting; admitting it was her first time doing a procedure on this scale!
The nails will first be on show at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! in Orlando, Florida.
In the immediate future, Ayanna plans to grow her nails again, but not quite to the length she previously measured at.
At Guinness World Records we want to show that everyone in the world is the best at something, and we’re here to measure it! Whether you’ve got the stretchiest skin, know the world’s smallest dog or want to create the largest human dominoes chain we want to hear about it.

    DigmerDigmerDay ago
    • Well the nails were probably putting strain on her joints in her fingers and also with nails that long she can't do anything cause the nails get in the way , if she ever wanted to do any activities such as bowling or any other sport then she wouldn't be able to so departing from them opens up a million new life choices.

  • I always wonder WHY. Doing this IS so extreme so you wonder. It impedes your life, hard to do physical things, etc. It must be for attention or some sort of unusual reason unlike the normal she says it is. Sorry, not hate, concern.
