Well, this is Shridhar Chillal - and he has been growing the fingernails on his left hand for a massive 66 YEARS. On Wednesday, Shridhar Chillal from Pune, India, who holds the Guinness World Record for the longest fingernails ever recorded on a single hand, finally cut his nails.
Shridhar's nails will now be displayed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square.
Per the Guinness World Records, Chillal started growing his nails at age 14 after a teacher told him off for breaking his long nail.
"When I chose to cut my nails, it was hard for me to make this decision", he said.
Chillal tried to cut the nails himself with a clipper, despite the fact that his thumbnail looked like a legit tree branch, and unsurprisingly had little success.
It's not an easy business growing the world's longest nails.
He admitted there were also perks to having the world's longest nails that he will miss.
"When I had my nails I took special care of them because they're a very delicate part of our body, I took care of them for a lifetime", he said. "Mr. Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the ideal home to honor his legacy", said Suzanne Smagala-Potts, a Ripley's representative.
Chillal made a decision to see how long he could grow them, even though the Guinness Book of World Records didn't exist then.
Despite Mr Chillal's fingernails causing him to lose function in his left hand due to their weight and length, and his fingers being permanently fused together, he went on work as a photographer for a government agricultural magazine for 22 years.
His nails will be on display for all to see at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square. "While he may have cut his fingernails, his nails will be forever memorialized inside Ripley's Believe It or Not!".
But he chose to cut away an important part of his life earlier this week when he flew to NY to have the nails removed by a doctor.
