HOUSTON – A retired salon owner is trying to nail a new world record.Quick question for you: When’s the last time you cut (or filed) your nails? Meet Simone Taylor, the 16-year-old girl who hasn’t cut her nails in over three years—and has the photos to prove it., Taylor has been growing her nails since the summer of 2014, and has even re-taught herself how to type and write with her six-inch nails (yup). So I can’t imagine ditching my nail file or clippers for another, you know, thousand days or so, which is exactly what one woman did.
Everyone picks their nose, I mean boogers don't just come out by themselves.23 years later, she is closing in on world record length.Each of her nails is between 26 and 26 ½ inches long.“It takes me about a week to finish (polishing) them,” said Williams. So they can have something to look back on and say this is my gammy.”Her toenails are long too.Taylor alleges that her self-proclaimed “addiction” to long nails began the day she watched nail-painting tutorials on You Tube and was inspired to see how long she could grow her own.“It wasn’t my intention to grow them so long, but as they grew, so did the amount of compliments, and they became more and more a part of me,” said Taylor.
