WORLD RECORD: Woman's Fingernails Are Ten Feet Long

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 on Wednesday, introducing "The Dutchess" and 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 10-feet-2-inches on her left hand and 9-feet-7-inches 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.

The previous record holder for longest nails was Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City, according to the Guinness World Records website. Redmond's nails measured a total 28 feet in 2008 but she lost her nails in a car crash the following year, the site said.

      Didn't have any luck with the replies did you? Apparently your opinion wasn't too popular.
