Woman Spends Four long Years To Grow Super Long Fingernails Just To Win A Bet
To what extent can you go to just win a bet? Well, if you are anything like Russian blogger Elena Shilenkova, you'll go to any extent and do anything it takes to win a bet! At least this is what she did.
The Real Bet
So Elena made a $3000 bet with her friend. In the bet, Elena’s friend claimed that her fingernails would not grow more than 5 cm. To prove her friend wrong, Elena decided to grow her nails and before she knew, the nails were almost 12 cms long.
Amazing? Not Sure!
Elena won the bet within a year but eventually decided to keep growing them for three more years, for which she even holds a record in the Guinness Book of World Records. Although it sounds extremely amazing but when you look at the photos, you realize it isn't entirely amazing!
Compromise A Lot!
In order to get her nails this big, Elena had to compromise on lot of things! She literally had to give up sports and travel to achieve this feat. While a normal person finds it hard to avoid their average length fingernails from chipping, Elena took care of hers as if they were her babies. She gave up swimming and her favorite sport Tennis!
TO an extent, she had to figure out a new way of typing! She has been getting a mixed response from people when they observe her nails, some find it creepy, while there are others who take selfies with her and think her nails are really cool. Not everyone liked it you see!
One things is for sure, she had to be extremely patient to maintain her growing nails. She has also received widespread attention on her YouTube and Instagram regarding her nails. But it almost always works in her favor, because she loves the attention she gets. She's planning on cutting her nails very soon!
