Shridhar Chillal, a retired photographer from India, held the Guinness World Record for the longest fingernails until 2000. Nerve damage, a disfigured hand and the desire for a peaceful night's sleep prompted him to cut his nails. He subsequently suffered such emotional pain that he glued his nails back on.
