According to Guinness World, Ayanna Williams (USA), Guinness World Records title holder has officially parted with her grand manicure after cutting her nails.


Ayanna broke her own record for the longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) with a new length of 733.55cm (24.07 ft) since the initial confirmation in 2017.

An electric rotary tool was used to cut Ayanna’s lengthy nails after measuring them a final time.

This is the first time she has cut her nails since the early 90s. She was first officially recognized for her talons in 2017 and was one of the record-breaking stars to feature in Guinness World Records 2018.


Her nails measured 576.4cm and she needed over two bottles of nail polish and 20 hours to do her manicure.

Ayanna’s fingernails will be preserved and on display at the Ripley’s Believe it or not! Museum in Orlando, Florida.
