World's Longest Fingernails & Other 2012 Record Breakers

By September 19, 2011

Follow me on:

World's Longest Fingernails"The hardest thing for me to do is dig in my pockets," Chris "The Dutchess" Walton told me. "Everything else I can do myself -- driving, shopping, cleaning the house ... although when I vacuum, the cord gets tangled in my fingers."

It's not hard to see why -- the 45-year-old rock singer from Las Vegas has a collective 19 feet, 9 inches of fingernail.

That's good enough for her to scratch her way into the 2012 edition of Guinness World Records.

"I never set out to make it into Guinness," she told me in an interview for The Huffington Post. "It just happened. One day I stopped cutting my nails. I liked the way they looked. And they just kept growing."

And growing.

See more of Walton's nails and other 2012 record holders -- including the man with nearly 300 piercings in his genitals and a college girl with the country's longest tongue -- in my new photo features, 2012 Guinness World Records.
