Teen mom in 72-hour nail-adorning marathon for Guinness World Records

A teen mom has described her quest for the Guinness World Record as a testament that being a mother as a teenager should not be the end of the road for anyone. She says she attempted the record for teen mothers like her in Nigeria.

As 19-year-old Lisha Dachor awaits the final GWR verdict on her attempt, she disclosed that she has painted over 4,000 nails in 72 hours in an attempt to break the world record. This translates into 55.5 finger-painting per hour.

Guinness World Record rules state that for Lisha’s attempt to count, she must paint 60 fingernails per hour.

With a nail brush in hand Lisha breezed around an events centre in Plateau State, adorning hundreds of fingernails with blue, pink and purple varnish.

Her three-day marathon came to an end on Wednesday. She is now waiting for GWR to review her attempt after she submits her evidence.

She hopes the Guinness World Record will ratify her evidence soon, adding that she embarked on the challenge to change the narrative about teen mothers like herself.

“I want to give people hope, especially single mothers, because many people don’t think we have anything to offer,” she stated.

The nail technician has been working professionally for almost three years and says she also wants to put women from northern Nigeria in the spotlight.

Lisha says she also hopes her record attempt will put Plateau, her home state, on the world map.

“People judge the Plateau by the cover. Apart from the ethnic issues we have, Plateau is a beautiful place. I got support from all ethnic groups while I embarked on this attempt,” she said.
