At the event, which took place in Plateau State, dubbed a “nail-a-thon,” Dachor was reported to have painted over 4,000 artificial nails in 72 hours.

In a post on her Facebook page on Thursday, she wrote, “Breaking barriers and setting records! Honoured to have set a new milestone in the world of nail art with the longest marathon painting of artificial nails by an individual. Grateful for the journey and the incredible support.”

Dachor had earlier announced her intention to undertake the challenge from April 28 to May 1 at Odilin’s Event Centre, behind the National Library in Jos, Plateau State.

In an interview with the BBC, Dachor stated that she aims to use her record attempt to shine a positive spotlight on Plateau State.

“People judge the Plateau by its 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.

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

With the event concluded, Dachor awaits the review of her attempt by the Guinness World Records, upon submission of evidence documenting her marathon nail-painting session.

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Muftwang, also took to his handle on X.com to express his pride in Dachor’s “record-breaking spirit.”

“I proudly join in celebrating Lisha Seleme Dachor’s record-breaking spirit of a young talent from Plateau State on her Guinness World Record attempt for the longest nail art marathon. Your determination aligns with my administration’s policy objectives for the youth and inspires us all,” he wrote.
