The World’s Longest Nails

A Las Vegas entertainer, known professionally as The Dutchess (sic), Chris Walton (born and still a girl, just for the sake of clarity) has been growing her nails uncut since she was 18. Now 45, the mother of 6 and grandmother of 3 is the proud record holder of the world’s longest nails.

“It’s kind of like a body part that I was born with, now I don’t know what I would do without them,” the 45-year-old said.

“I’m pretty sure one day I will cut them, but I can’t see it in my head because I’m so used to having them.

“It’s like a leg, I wouldn’t just chop it off so it’s gonna take some thinking.”


Walton’s booger removers measure at 20-feet per hand, but it’s worth pointing out that she only achieved this new fame because of the previous record holder’s tragedy. Lee Redmond, the former record holder for longest nails, lost her 28-feet back scratchers in a car accident 2 years ago. I’m just going to assume the accident occurred because she tried driving.
