Chris “The Duchess” Walton, a Vegas rock singer and mother of six has made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records for growing nearly 20 feet of nails on both hands.
“It’s kind of like a body part that I was born with,” the 45-year-old says of the appendages she’s been growing for 18 years. “Now I don’t know what I would do without them.”
Walton is the mother of six daughters and has three grandchildren. She says the nails don’t interfere with being a grandmother, and if they ever do, “they have to go.” But for now she says, “I’ll grow them until they get in my way. Until I can’t do everyday living.”
The Duchess says she can cook, eat and drive just fine, but there is one thing she does need help with —she can’t reach into a pocket. She also has to alter her clothing to accommodate her nails. “If I like a jacket, I’ll take the seam out of the arm and replace it with a zipper so I can get my nails in the sleeves,” she explained.
At least once a month Walton manicures her nails, which takes about five bottles of polish and a lot of patience.
“I wear my patience on my hands,” she said. “Nobody can say I don’t have patience.”
The Sun posted a videotaped interview of The Duchess and her fingernails engaging in some everyday tasks like eating and ironing. Pretty interesting stuff.
Now I have to keep it real. Am I the only one in the world who wants to ask her….
How does she um, er…
