See This Texan Woman’s Insane 18-Foot Fingernails

It only took her 20 years to do it…

Ayanna Williams of Houston just broke into the Guiness Book of World Records.

The southern belle is shocking the internet with her nails that measure up to 18 feet together in total. The nails on her left hand are longer than her right, measuring a total of 326.5 centimeters (10 feet, 8.5 inches) compared to 249.8 ccentimeters (8 feet 2.3 inches).

Peep the video below to see Ayanna and her nails in action. 

She beats out the former record holder, Chris “The Dutchess” Walton, who cut her own nails, which had grown to a total length of 731.4 centimeters (23 feet, 11 inches).


In order to protect them, Ayanna “avoids washing dishes and sleeps with them resting on a pillow” she told Guinness World Records. Her granddaughters currently help her with daily chores so she can avoid breaking a nail.

Err, we don’t even want to ask how she bathes.

Apparently, She spends up to 20 hours – and two bottles of nail polish – to paint her nails.  

To keep them sanitary, she told People, “I wash them about three times a day. I clean them with a brush at the sink. I use disinfectant or bleach.”

And if she wants to type or use her cellphone? She “uses a pencil or one of her knuckles” to hit the button.

When asked what would it take for her to cut them? She told them, “Six figures.”

We’re just gonna leave this one right here…
