As of yesterday, Diana Armstrong has just taken the record for the longest fingernails in the world! 42 feet, 10.4 inches long. She has blown past the previous record of 18 feet, 9.7 inches. Hell, if i go a few weeks without cutting my nails, it feels like the previous record!
She grew up with a mom that always had long nails. Diana stopped cutting her nails in 1997 when her daughter passed at the age of only 16 from an asthma attack. The day before her passing, her daughter had polished her nails.
She's got her family tasked with maintaining her nails as it takes about 5 hours to polish and fill 20 bottles of nail polish.
