But, weight until you hear from Shridar Chillal, an Indian who earned the Guinness World Record in 2011 to know just how much sacrifice it takes. He sat in his house for more than 62 years, doing nothing but get his fingernails grow to a recognizable length. Shridar Chillal claims to have never trimmed his fingernails for an astonishingly extended duration, since 1952 when gas cost 20 cents and Harry Truman was still the US president.

Her 24-inch nails that are said to be behind her third position among people with the world’s longest nails. Although she believes that her nails will open up channels for her to meet her favorite celebrities, she reports that the salon dishes out at least $ 250 each month to keep her fingernails in shape.
The fourth in the category is Louise Hills. But, unlike the preliminary three, she owes her recognition in the world’s biggest nails category to her toenails. Louise Hills, a resident of California, claims to have grown her toenails up to 6 inches. This explains why she has never worn closed shoes for the past five years. Nonetheless, she maintains her toes tow days a week, including the time for painting and filling them.
At the same time, a 42-year old Chinese male, Wen Jian, takes the fifth position among people with the world’s biggest nails. Wen Jian has grown his left-hand nails for about 15 years, which he justifies as a strategy to help him control his temper. He claims that he had violent tendencies before growing his nails. He is grateful that his nails, currently 14″ (35 cm) long, obstruct him from making a fist. Evens so, long nails have brought Wen Jian a few inconveniences, including the fact that he has to rest his hand on a shoe box to prevent his nails from breaking whenever he goes to sleep.
