World’s Longest Nails: Ayanna Williams, the Texan woman who held the Guinness World Records title for longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) has finally cut her nails after almost 30 years. Williams 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.

However, in an emotional and bitter-sweet parting, she got her nails cut over the weekend at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas. Dr. Allison Readinger of Trinity Vista Dermatology in Forth Worth, Texas (USA), used an electric rotary tool to cut the record holder’s lengthy nails after measuring them a final time.

Williams said she plans to only grow her nails about six inches, according to Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, which will display her trimmed nails at its museum in Orlando, Florida.
The record for the longest fingernails ever on a pair of female hands still belongs to Lee Redmond, who started to grow them in 1979. They reached a length of 28 feet, but Redmond lost them in an automobile accident in 2009, according to Guinness World Records.
