A nail technician in Houston,Texas in the United States of America (USA) has been crowned 2020’s woman with longest fingernails.

Ayanna Williams who has been growing her nails for 23 years gained the title after her nails when measured by the Guinness World Record totaled 576.4cm (18 ft 10.9 in).

Wondering how she performs her chores? Ayanna avoids washing dishes and sleeps with her ‘super’ nails resting on a pillow. 

The nail technician revealed it takes her up to 20 hours and two bottles of nail polish to paint her tremendous talons.

“They’re a part of me so they’re here to stay!” Ayanna says when asked whether she has any plans of cutting her nails in the future.

Commenting on her incredible title, she revealed “I cannot wait to see my picture in the Guinness World Records 2018 book”.

Ayanna became the record holder for the Longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) after Chris “The Dutchess” Walton (also USA) cut her own nails, which had grown to a total length of 731.4 cm (23 ft 11 in).
