There are new entries every day Guinness Book of World Records, but the latest involves Diana Armstrong and her record-breaking nails honoring her late daughter. Recently registered as the longest fingernails ever recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records, Diana Armstrong revealed in a touching video that she grew them after her daughter’s untimely demise 20 years ago.
@HuffPost reports, Minneapolis resident Diana Armstrong has just made history And the Guinness Book of World Records made it official. Armstrong was recently named as having the longest fingernails of anyone, more than twice the length of the previous record-holder. Her official titles are “Longest Nails on a Pair of Hands (Female)” and “Longest Nails on a Pair of Hands (Female).” Her nails measure 42 feet, a jawbone of 10.4 inches long. However, Armstrong decided not to just develop his nails as a hobby, as it was a heartbreaking family tragedy that led to his record-breaking growth.
Back in 1997, Diana Armstrong’s 16-year-old daughter, Latisha, tragically passed away in her sleep after suffering an asthma attack. Armstrong explained that the night before, her daughter stopped by to paint her nails and she has been unable to bite them since they remind her of her daughter. ,[My kids] Never knew why I was growing them. I didn’t tell anyone. I kept it to myself until I finally told [my kids] Why was I raising them? It made them feel bad, so I felt bad, so I just told them: ‘You can ask me to cut my nails but I can’t.'”
As she was receiving her formal honor from the Guinness Book of World Records, Armstrong was clearly emotional and admitted that she hoped her daughter would feel if she were alive to see it.
“I think he [Tisha] I would be proud because he is the last one who did my nails. When I grow my nails, this is what I think, I have a daughter,” she said.
