Ayanna Williams, the woman who holds a record for having the longest fingernails in the world has cut off her nails for the first time in nearly 30 years.
Recall that the woman broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest fingernails in 2017, when they measured nearly 19 feet long.
Well, Ayanna who lives in Houston, Texas, has finally cut her nails over the weekend, after nearly 30 years of not cutting them.
According to reports, she had her nails cut at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas, where an electric rotary tool was used for her first nail cut since the early 1990s.
It was gathered that before getting them cut, she measured it one final time and it was 24 ft, 0.7 in.
It took her three to four bottles of nail polish and over 20 hours to do her manicure prior to cutting her nails.
“With or without my nails, I will still be the queen. My nails don’t make me, I make my nails!” Williams said.
Williams said she plans to only grow her nails about six inches.
However, because of her long nails, she was unable to do some activities, such as washing the dishes and putting sheets on a bed.
According to her, her new goal is to encourage the next history-making nail enthusiast to go for a Guinness World Records title.
