A Salt Lake City woman who was in Guinness World Records for her long fingernails has lost them in a car accident. 


Ok, what is this world coming to that first of all someone thinks it’s a good idea to grow the longest fingernails ever and second that you would ever pose “Glamour Shot-esque” with said fingernails and third that when she breaks one of them they make the news?!!? 

Here are the stats:

Lee Redmond clawed her way into the Guiness World Records by growing her nails to a total length of nearly 25 feet(7.62 meters) for 27 years without breaking! Lee is from Salt Lake City, Utah… 

She’s a proud grandma….can you imagine her interacting with her grandkids?  “Come here little Sally, sit on Grandma’s lap…oops, wait a second, let Grandma untangle her fingernails from your hair…ummmm, this is gonna take a while.”  Entirely creepy.

There’s so many things that run through my mind – the “how would you do (insert thought here)?” comes to mind. 

And can you imagine making a nail appointment for a manicure? “Hello, Bambi?  This is Lee, I need to make an appointment to get my nails painted.  Can you find a free couple of days to give me a manicure and order the 302 bottles of polish you’ll need to paint my nails?”

Not to mention trying to figure out how she washes her hair, puts on makeup, and a whole bunch of other awkward thoughts.

I wonder what happens when she walks in a windstorm and her fingernails rattle?  Gloves aren’t an option unless she maybe gets the finger cut out gloves and spends a couple of hours threading her nails through them. 

It’s just too weird!

    How does she do anything with them you know.. Like take a shower, grab things, type on the computer or and as far as i’m concerned how to get her clothes on… I’m not being mean or anything but by then i would have gotten them cut or something..

  12. April says:

    also in order to put a ring on you would have to go all the way up her fingernails… So weird

  13. znaep says:
