Funny for some or disgusting for others, this world record is undoubtedly impressive!

Diana Armstrong has just appeared in the Guinness World Records thanks to her nails: they measure 13 meters (over 42 inches) and are now the longest in the world.

Not cut since 1997

Diana has been growing her nails for 25 years. After an accident in her family in 1997, this mother made the decision never to cut her hair again. It was Diana’s daughter who actually took care of her nails (which she always had long) and who had just passed away…“She was the only one who did my nails. She polished and filed them for me,” she told Guinness World Records.

It is therefore to fight against sadness and depression that this American has promised herself not to cut her nails anymore, to the great despair of her children who were at first ashamed of this decision before assuming it with their mother.

Diana Armstrong obviously struggles to maintain her nails, which is why she does it every five years and she has recently decided to color them. Laying varnish on her long nails requires 15 to 20 bottles.

His feet as hands

“Diana says she is limited in what she can do with her hands and often uses her feet to pick up clothes off the floor or to open the fridge”can we read on the records site. “Diana has also given up driving and also tends to avoid zippers.”
