World’s longest fingernails finally cut after 66 years

Owner of world's longest nails has them cut after growing them for 66 years

During the latest measurement, his nails had a combined length of 29 feet and 10.1 inches, about as long as a London bus. "Growing your nails as a retirement plan-who knew?" "Mr Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the flawless home to honour his legacy", said Suzanne Smagala-Potts, PR Manager, Ripley's Believe It or Not!

For most his life, Chillal's nails have made his life more hard. He had made it to the the Guinness Book of World Records in 2016 for having the "Longest Fingernails on a Single Hand Ever".

A school yard incident prompted the challenge for Shridhar Chillal to grow his nails on his left hand when he was a teenager. They were extremely fragile and he had to take care when sleeping. After Chillal accidentally broke a teacher's nail while he was getting rowdy with a friend, the teacher told him he could not possibly understand the care needed to grown out long nails.

Trump snubs CNN, slams NBC during Theresa May presser
Trump: " See, that's such dishonest reporting ", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together. Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she's as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair.


Lucas Jackson / Reuters Shridhar Chillal of India displays his newly cut fingernails at an announcement that the five fingernails he grew for 66 years will be displayed in Ripley's Believe it or Not in NY.

Chillal had requested that his cut nails be immortalised in a museum and the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum in Times Square responded positively.

While Chillal kept the nails on his right hand trimmed, his record breaking nails on his left hand weighed heavily on his daily life.

Lawsuits Alleging Roundup Causes Cancer To Advance
A flurry of lawsuits against Monsanto followed, and California added glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer. District Judge Vince Chhabria allows hundreds of lawsuits against Roundup's manufacturer, Monsanto, to move forward.


The weight of the long nails left Mr Chillal's hand in a permanently fixed position, unable to separate his fingers.

"I am in pain", he told Guinness World Records.

Finally deciding to change his life, the Guinness World Record holder (for the "longest fingernails on a single hand") flew to NY to seek aid from a doctor. Historically, long nails are a sign of wealth for a man in India. I guarantee you it is worth losing the world record for.
