Meet Ayanna Williams, the lady with the world’s longest fingernails

In today’s episode, we’d like you to meet Ayanna Williams, the lady with the world’s longest fingernails who holds a record in the Guinness World Records 2018 Book. This is Wonders of the World on Youth Shades TV, and I am Yakkie, your host. Enjoy!


Ayanna Williams of Houston in Texas, USA, has been growing her nails for more than 20 years.

It takes Ayanna up to 20 hours – and two bottles of nail polish – to paint her nails.


When she’s not painting her own fingernails, Ayanna is giving manicures to clients as she works as a nail technician.

According to Ayanna, it takes her longer to do anything than it would take other people, because of the length of her nails.


She takes tremendous steps to protect her nails and prevent them from breaking such as avoiding to wash dishes and sleeps with them resting on a pillow.

Asked whether she has any plans to cut her nails in the future, Ayanna says: they’re a part of her so they’re here to stay!

Questions raised by some people have included personal hygiene especially how she cleans herself after using the toilet. What do you think?
