Agbako: meet the Lady that Spent 23 Years Growing World Longest Nails

Ayanna Williams, a female nail artist from Texas, has been awarded the title of the world's longest fingernails. They nails measure more than 18 feet long in total.

She has spent more than 23 years growing them.

Her nails, each of which is just under two foot long, have earned her a place in the Guinness World Records 2018 Edition. She said she first received inspiration from her friend and plans to continue growing them.

She has also revealed that the most challenging thing about having extremely long fingernails, which can take up to one week to paint, is pulling up her trousers. While she’s constantly getting lots of attention for her nails, and knows she is rather unique, her friends and family think it’s quite normal.

In order to take care of her nails, Ayanna uses anti-bacterial soap and a nail brush to clean them daily. And to help them grow, she regularly applies hardener and a thin layer of acrylic.

‘To let my children know that anything they want to accomplish can be done. It takes courage, discipline and patience but it can be accomplished,’ said Ayanna on her reason for applying for the record.
