After about 30 years of growing her nails, the woman with the world longest fingernails, Ayanna Williams, has finally part with her nails as she sold them to a franchising company, Ripley’s, on April 6, 2021.
Beginning on Friday, April 9, 2021, Ayanna’s nails will be displayed on Ripley’s Believe It or Not! archive.
According to a recent report from the Guinness World Records, Ayanna Williams has the longest fingernails on a pair of hands for the female category with a combined total measurement of 733.55 cm (24 ft 0.7 in).
According to the report from Ripley’s, the nails were bought by the company at an undisclosed amount. Ayanna’s plans to move on to the next chapter of her life, has necessitated the difficult decision to part with her iconic nails. But she couldn’t simply clip “her babies,” because they deserve a place in history!
Ayanna’s nails were cut off by Dr. Readinger at Trinity Vista Dermatology, Forth Worth, Texas.
