Before getting them cut over the weekend, she got one final measurement: 24 ft, 0.7 in. That manicure took three to four bottles of nail polish over the course of a few days.
Williams got the task done at a dermatology office in Fort Worth, Texas, where an electric rotary tool was used for her first nail cut since the early 1990s.
“With or without my nails, I will still be the queen,” Williams said, according to Guinness. “My nails don’t make me, I make my nails!”
Until now, Williams was unable to do some activities, such as washing the dishes and putting sheets on a bed. She said her new goal is to encourage the next history-making nail enthusiast to go for a Guiness World Records title.
