“The Dutchess” had world’s longest nails for five years before cutting them.

From 2011-2016, Christine Walton aka “The Dutchess”, a singer from Las Vegas, USA, had the world’s longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female), measuring a combined length of 731.4 cm (23 ft 11 in).

Aged 45 at the time, Christine claimed the title after former record holder Lee Redmond tragically lost her nails in a car crash.

Interestingly, Christine didn’t intentionally grow her nails to such record-breaking lengths.

She began growing them in the ‘90s, and due to being busy making music and taking care of her young daughters, she never found time to visit the nail salon.

Despite having such long nails, Christine could still perform day-to-day tasks such as cooking, driving, and braiding her daughters’ hair.

However, she admitted to facing challenges when buying clothes and getting dressed: “I’ll see the cutest shirts, and they have skinny little arms and I’m like, ‘How am I gonna fit this through there?’

“I started buying those Roman dresses that just slide up because I didn’t have to have straps or anything.”
