Texas woman has world's longest fingernails

Nail artist Ayanna Williams has fingernails so long that when combined they measure more than 18ft.
The 60-year-old took a staggering 23 years to grow her nails to their record-breaking length and has to endure a daily maintenance routine of washing them with antibacterial soap to keep them healthy.

According to Williams, her insanely long nails do get in the way of day-to-day tasks, however decades of experience have helped her to find ways to do most things without too much difficulty.
"They're a part of me so they're here to stay," she says.

When asked what it was that compelled her to grow her nails to such an extreme length, she said that it was to set an example for her children by demonstrating that anything is possible.

"It takes courage, discipline and patience but it can be accomplished," she said.

Who thinks Branson would pay me a hundred grand to sneak in her house with some clippers and steal her nails?

One thing for sure, you can't wipe your own ass. How do you eat? How do you sleep? The only thing I can admire is the patience to do nothing what so ever only to watch them things grow.

As a woman who likes her nails short (and I never bite them) I just have to ask, why?  Personal hygiene must be nigh on impossible without help.  Yuk!  There was another American woman a few years back who had her nails a similar length but they got snapped off when she was in a car accident.  She never re-grew them apparently.  That must tell you something.

Doesn't this woman have anything better to take up than to grow her nails into deformed claws? I think they look hideous and to be honest. I am rather tired of this idea that everyone is expected to applaud her for such an asinine undertaking. There is no inherent value and it is a sorry waste of one's life to spend it on something so stupid then have the audacity to broadcast this as if it was a real accomplishment and expect recognition. Now if she tried to take up oil painting or car repair then that is at least something that gives back to the person.   How does she even manage to perform ... [More]
