Ripley’s unveils world’s longest fingernails

New York’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum unveiled the left hand fingernails of Shridhar Chillal, known as the Guinness World Record holder for the longest fingernails ever reached on a single hand. Chillal, 82, recently retired his fingernails to Ripley’s after growing them for 66 years. The nails have a combined measurement of 358.1 inches , with his thumbnail as the longest single nail at 77.8 inches . He stopped cutting his left hand fingernails in 1952, after a teacher scolded him for roughhousing with a friend and accidentally breaking off the teacher’s fingernail. The teacher said Chillal would never understand the attention to detail and level of care required to take care of long fingernails.Chillal’s teacher’s words proved true, the world record holder said he had to take delicate care of his nails and he took care of them for a lifetime.
