Long fingernails was a big trend. Attempting a world record in honor of the passing of her daughter inspired Diana Armstrong from Minnesota. "She was the only one who did my nails. She polished them and filed them for me. She did my nails that night before. We was up all night, so I just couldn't cut my nails off after that."
The total length of her nails is 42 feet and 10.4 inches Imagine if they broke right before achieving the record. She had been letting her nails grow bigtime for over 25 years.
