Ayanna Williams has been growing her nails for 23 years.
Ayanna Williams of Houston in Texas, USA, has been growing her nails for 23 years. In total, her nails reach a combined length of 18 feet, reports Guinness World Records
, making her the world record holder for the 'Longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female).' And if you think that's incredible, hear this: Ayanna's longest individual nail is on her left thumb, and measures 2 ft 2.7 in. This is longer than the shortest man ever, Chandra Bahadur Dangi, at 1 ft 9.5 in.
"It just takes me longer to do anything than it would take a normal human being," says Ayanna. "They're a part of me so they're here to stay!" she says when asked if she plans to trim them.
A video shared by Guinness World Records on Facebook shows how she manages to do everyday tasks. It has garnered over 4 million views since being posted on September 7.
