Would you like to have 18 feet fingernails? Probably you don’t. But Ayanna Williams maintains fingernails of more than 18 feet in length. Not due to a medical condition but purposely.
Currently, in 2020, she’s crowned as the worlds longest fingernails holder by the Guinness Book of the world records. A nail artist from Houston, all her fingernails totals for a length of 18 feet. Each measure about two feet in length.
She says that the most challenging about having long fingernails which takes up to one week to paint them is pulling up her trousers. Although she gets a lot of attention from society because of her long fingernails, her friends and family consider it normal.
To take care of the nails Ayanna uses anti-bacterial soap and a nail brush to clean them daily. She also applies a kind of hardener and acrylic to help them grow without getting damaged.
“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,” says Ayanna.
However, she says that applying for a Guinness record was not one of her dreams.
“I am elated and honoured. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d make it into the Guinness World Records books!”, she said.
