Woman sets new world record with 42 ft of fingernails

This is what happens if you don't cut your nails... Image Credit: YouTube // Guinness World Records
Diana Armstrong not only has the longest nails of any living person, but also the longest nails of anyone ever.
Armstrong, who hails from Minnesota, has allowed her fingernails to grow non-stop for 25 years.

They are now so ridiculously long that they actually reach the floor. The longest - her right thumbnail - measures 138.94 cm (4 ft 6.7 in) while the smallest - her left pinky - measures 109.2 cm (3 ft 7 in).

Combined together, her nails measure a whopping 1,306.58 cm (42 ft 10.4 in).
Unsurprisingly, maintaining them is quite the task - as is attempting to complete everyday chores.

Picking things up off the floor can be a challenge, meaning that she often has to rely on others around the house to help her with certain tasks.

Getting a manicure - something that she only has done every 4-5 years - is another major undertaking, requiring a carpentry tool for filing and around 15 to 20 bottles of nail polish.

As things stand, however, she has no plans to cut her record-breaking nails, not even if someone paid her to do it.

I know a few people with long nails. One of whom has made television appearances. My congratulations to all who take such liberties. I'd never do it, but my admiration is always with those who don't let negative reactions stop them.
