The woman who has been caring for her keratin for nearly 3 decades said so long on her nails in the world record … but she needed a power tool to do it!
Ayana Williams HAD held the Guinness World Record for the longest nails on a pair of women’s hands since 2017 – when they almost measured a combined 19 feet – but she passed on her title for a much-needed manicure … and it’s pretty insane to see.
Williams went to Dr. Alison Reginger of Trinity Vista Dermatology in Texas earlier this month to have her nails cut with an electric rotary tool after revealing she had been growing them for about 29 years.
She told the doctor that she had “mixed emotions from my babies leaving”, but said the time had come because she was tired of them … we think for obvious reasons.
After the procedure, Williams said she was very relieved and the knuckles were really loose. BTW, her cut nails are on their way to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando.
It doesn’t matter if Ayana plans to start growing her nails again, but she may have to turn 40 if she wants to set a women’s all-time record – that’s 28 feet 4 inches, set by Lee Redmond before she broke her nails in a car accident in 2009.
