World’s longest fingernails finally cut after 66 years

Longest nails 1

Due to years of growing his nails, Chillal's left hand is handicapped.

A school yard incident prompted the challenge for Shridhar Chillal to grow his nails on his left hand when he was a teenager. Chillal's fingernail exhibit will be officially unveiled at Ripley's Believe It or Not!

After about 64 years, when he had grown his nails to a total length of 909.6 cm (9.1 m), Chillal's name found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for having "Longest Fingernails on a Single Hand Ever" in 2016.

But now look! He has had them cut and they have gone on display at Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum of weird and wonderful things in NY in the US.


Warning: this video shows graphic footage of a man getting his fingernails cut after growing them for 66 years.

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. His longest nail was of his thumbnail, which measured 197.8 centimeters. "Now, forever my nails will be remembered and forever my nails will be seen by people from all over the world". In 2015, he told HuffPost India how hard it was to sleep with his long nails. "Mr. Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the ideal home to honor his legacy", Ripley's Suzanne Smagala-Potts, said. "Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the ideal home to honour his legacy".

The weight of his nails has left him permanently handicapped and in constant pain - he can not open his hand or move his fingers. Judging by the state of most fingernails after a day in midtown NY, they'll be filthy in no time. Odditorium in Times Square. "While he may have cut his fingernails, his nails will be forever memorialized inside Ripley's Believe It or Not!".
