Nail Stylist Sets a New Guinness World Record

In the middle of Los Angeles with its slammed deadlines and crazy work schedules, Naja the Nail Guru has long been established as the go-to nail professional with an A-list clientele including stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Pink and Miranda Lambert.  Currently a full-time session nail stylist, Naja Rickette's artistry and keen business sense have propelled her to become one of the top nail stylists in the world.

Now, Naja is the new Guinness World Records title-holder for polishing the highest number of clients in an eight-hour period. The record setting event was filmed at the Kimble Hair Studio in West Hollywood, CA.  The studio is owned by famed hair stylist Kim Kimble who has been Beyoncé's personal hair stylist for the last 17 years.  It is also the set of LA Hair, the reality show on WEtv which Naja joined last year.

"It was a really neat feeling to have created a nail polishing record to be included in world records," exclaimed Naja. "I also felt great satisfaction that I fulfilled my pioneering work ethic by setting a WORLD record. For this moment in time I have achieved something no one else has done in the entire world. It is a rewarding accomplishment that I receive with the utmost humility in the hopes of inspiring others to go out and give their all in achieving their dreams."

Currently the only other world record held in the category of nail polishing is the most nails filed and varnished in 8 hours. The total was 5,193 and was achieved by Beauty Connection Spa (UAE) at Dubai Mall, in Dubai, UAE, on February 14, 2014. This was set by a large group and not an individual nail stylist.

The third season of LA HAIR premiered on Thursday, May 22, 2014. Naja's world record is currently scheduled to be featured in episode 209, airing on Thursday, July 17 at 9:00 pm EST. To learn more about Naja, visit www.najanailguru.com
