A woman in Texas, US has spent 23 years growing her nails and has now won recognition for having the world's longest fingernails.
Ayanna Williams has finally won a place in the Guinness World Records 2018 Edition.
Each of her nails measures about 0.6 meters long. In total, they measure 5.4 meters long.
In an interview, Williams said she was inspired by her friends and is intent on growing her nails even longer.
While the nails take up to a week to paint, the biggest challenge they pose to her is pulling up her trousers.
She said: "I am elated and honoured. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd make it into the Guinness World Records books!"
She said the main reason she applied for the record is to let her children know that they can accomplish anything they put their minds to.
