What to do when you break a 23-inch nail

The answer is to laugh it off, which is just what Ayanna Williams did when she visited Ripley’s believe It or Not! London to promote our newest book.

The day started normally enough as it can for a woman with 23-inch-long fingernails. She was doing interviews and posing for photos when one of her precious nails broke off!

How precious are her nails? She refers to them as her “pearls, her jewels, her girls.”

When the reporter asked if it hurt when she broke her nail, Ayanna replied “It hurts my feelings. That’s it! ” Watch the video above for the full interview.

Asked if it hurts when she breaks a nail, Ayanna replied “It hurts my feelings. That’s it!”
