Woman With Longest Fingernails Gets Them Cut After 29 Years

I've been blogging since 2004 and it didn't take long for a post to consistently hit the number one spot, "The worlds longest fingernails - something for Jack". I don't know why, I don't know how but it is always my most read post by a country mile. I even decided to update it in 2019 as the the photos no longer worked, and many of the links had broken.

Today I was served up the following headline

Woman with the world's longest nails cuts them after nearly 30 years

Ayanna Williams of Houston broke the Guinness World Record for the world's longest fingernails in 2017, when they measured nearly 19 feet long. It took her more than two bottles of nail polish and 20 hours to do her manicure then.

Before getting them cut over the weekend, she got one final measurement: 24 ft, 0.7 in. That manicure took three to four bottles of nail polish over the course of a few days.

Williams got the task done at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas, where an electric rotary tool was used for her first nail cut since the early 1990s.
