Longest nails in the world

I wonder how this woman bathes, cooks or even wipe her own ass…

Lee Redmond holds the record in the Guinness Book of Records for longest fingernails on both hands. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah and has been growing her nails ever since 1979. She is frequently referred to as The Queen of Long Nails and she has made appearances on CBS and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum.

Although she had planned to cut her nails on November 22 2006, so she could better tend to her husband, who suffers from Alzheymer‘s, she ultimately decided to keep growing them.

Both her hands’ fingernails add up to a staggering 7 meters and 51.3 centimeters.

    Wonder how long it takes her to put on those rings. 😀

    Not the longest nails in the world:


    “Melvin Feizel Boothe of Pontiac, Michigan hasn’t cut his fingernails for 25 years, which means he now has a total nail length of 346 inches for both hands! Kinda makes it hard to use a keyboard….”

    Google calculator says: “346 inches = 8.7884 meters”

    @ NotTheLongestAnymore

    You’re right that link says he now has the longest nails, however, when I googled him, AoL was like the only important site that had some record of him. While Lee Redmond is on a lot more, including the official Guinness Book of Records website.

    I’ll keep digging and if it turns out she really hasn’t the longest nails anymore, I’ll change the article.

    He’s in the 2008 book. If you go on youtube there’s a video of a kid thumbing through the 2008 book and you see his pic and the kid mentions longest fingernails.

    Good, maybe now she can cut those nasty nails.
