After almost 30 years of growing her fingernails, Ayanna Williams, from Houston Texas, United States, has cut her nails. Ayanna said that she got tired of the nails, that’s why she decided to cut them and move forward to whatever life has for her. She didn’t cut her nails for almost three decades, for this, she was very popular all over the world.
She was recognised by the Guinness World Record in the year 2017 as the woman with the longest fingernails in the entire planet.
When her nails were measured by Guinness World Record in the year 2017, her nails reached a combined total of 576.4cm. Her nails were measured by Ripley’s Believe it or Not! And it had even gotten longer, as it measured 733.55cm in total.
To ensure that history does not ever forget about Ayanna’s nails, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! And Guinness World Records, bought her nails but they did not reveal the amount that they paid to the public.
She said that her new target will be to mentor anyone that is willing to go for the world record of the longest nails in the world.
She said that people that need encouragement are free to talk to her or even meet her in person. She also added that you must not bother about what people say, because no matter what you do in life, people will always talk. She plans to grow her nails to only 6 inches.
She told Guiness world record that she is excited about cutting her nails, because she is looking forward to a new beginning.
Ayanna wasn’t able to do things easily with her nails, she wasn’t even able to do some things at all. Before, she was scared to text, wash her dishes or even spread her bed, and open the door, because she was scared that her nails would break.
According to Ripley’s Believe it or Not!, Ayanna was very excited after they cut her fingernails off. She stood up in excitement and started doing all the things that she couldn’t do before. She opened the door, texted with her phone and she was very excited when she was about to step into her car, and she did it freely without being scared that she would break her nails.
Although Ayanna made it to the Guinness World Record, but she’s not the woman with the longest nails in the history of the world. There’s a woman named Redmond Lee, who grew her nails back in 1979, until they got to 28ft,4.5 inches.
