Shridhar Chillal, an 82 year old man from India who set the Guinness World Record for possessing the longest fingernails on a single hand in 2014, traveled to New York City to have them cut. The person performing the manicure needed to use a handheld wheel saw in order to cut through the incredible layers of keratin that had built up for well over a six decades. The detached fingernails will be displayed at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Time’s Square.
