A wheelchair-bound Michigan woman was turned away from a nail salon because of her shaky hands caused by her cerebral palsy.

Dejected, Angela Peters left the salon and was surprised to find Walmart cashier Ebony Harris, who offered to do her nails for her. 

Harris saw Peters denied service on July 30 and decided to step in, taking her break to do the manicure herself.

Together the women picked out the perfect color then sat at a Subway restaurant table for the special pampering session.

‘I just wanted to make her day special. I didn’t really want her day to be ruined. That’s why I did it. And plus she’s a sweetie,’ Harris said to WJRT. 

‘And you know, she moved her hands a little bit and she kept saying she was sorry. And, I told her don’t say that. I said you’re fine,’ she added. 

Tasia Smith, who works at the Subway, snapped a photo of the sweet moment.

‘I thought that was so nice of her and I already felt comfortable with her because, like I said, I shop at Walmart a lot,’ Peters said on Harris’ good deed. 

Their post went viral with more than 3,000 shares and hundreds of praising comments.

The manicure was a hit with Peters saying ‘Wow, these are amazing’ following Harris’ kind deed

 ‘I just wanted to make her day special. I didn’t really want her day to be ruined. That’s why I did it. And plus she’s a sweetie’ Harris, right, said on the manicure 

‘Today, this sweet girl went into Burton Walmart’s nail salon ‘Da Vi nails’ and they denied her service because ‘she moves too much’.. Out of the kindness of the Walmart workers hearts they went and bought nail polish and came into my work to paint this sweet girls nails,’ Smith wrote on July 30.

‘They were so patient with her (which she did great, barely moved & was just so sweet).. Its an absolute shame that they denied her for some thing so little. They will not be getting any service from me ever again! Thank you to the Walmart workers for making this beautiful girls day!’ she added. 

Speaking on that post, Smith said: ‘I just wanted to post it for awareness and appreciation, because people needed to know what was going on with the business and Ebony deserved all the appreciation she could get.’

As for Harris, she wants to clarify that her deed isn’t an attempt to bad mouth the nail salon. Instead it’s a lesson to treat all people with kindness, no matter what their differences may be. 

After choosing the perfect color, the two sat down at a Subway also connected to the Walmart for the manicure, where Subway worker Tasia Smith snapped a photo of the duo

‘We’re not trying to bash the nail salon. We’re not trying to make them lose customers, make them look bad. But maybe spread awareness that no matter the person, who they are, what color they are, disability, whatever, they’re people too,’ she said. 

‘She’s a girly girl. She’s just like you, me, Tasia, my daughter, anybody. She wants to look pretty, you know, and so why can’t she?’ she added.

As for her manicure, Peters couldn’t be more pleased with her freshly painted nails. 

‘I’m like wow. These are amazing!’ she said adding ‘I want to bring awareness to people’ with the viral deed.

‘I’m making new friends at Walmart as well and they get to see my abilities too. So it’s awesome,’ she said on the fame following her manicure to WNEM. 

‘I told her she’s a blessing to us, to anybody, not just me. She makes me look at life and appreciate it much more than, you know, what I have been,’ Harris said.
