Chris Walton has been working on her fingernails for 18 years. And it’s finally paying off.
Guinness World Records named Walton the woman with the longest fingernails, introducing her nails at an event in New York City.
The Las Vegas woman helped kick off the 2012 edition of the Guinness World Records book, which goes on sale later this month.Walton’s nails measure 3.10 metres on her left hand and 2.92 metres on her right hand. She said she does her own nails and makeup and does household chores even though her nails twist and turn.
“I hate all the cleaning, but I do it. And the makeup, I only wear so much,” said Walton, who has also been working on a singing career while raising a family.
