Walmart cashier steps in after nail salon refuses woman with cerebral palsy

A disabled woman who says she was turned away from a nail salon in Walmart received a manicure after all, but not from a traditional nail technician, CBS affiliate WNEM-TV reports.

Peters, 36, has cerebral palsy, which can make her hands shake.

"I just wanted to make her day special", Ebony Harris said.

Peters was at the store to have her nails done when the salon, according to Angela, said that her shaking, which is caused by her cerebral palsy, would make painting them too hard. She said the nail salon felt it would be too hard to do her nails. "If you see someone that's going through something and they need help, help them", Smith said. "She wants to look pretty, you know, and so why can't she?" They bought nail polish and headed to the nearby Subway where Harris painted Peters' nails.

Peters could not be more grateful to her friends for coming out and helping her in her time of need.

"They were so patient with her ... it's an absolute shame that they denied her for some thing so little".

Employee Ebony Harris recognized Peters from her previous trips to the store.

Sitting next to her new friend at her store inside Collette's Vintage and Antique Mall, Peters said she's grateful not only for Harris' help, but a attractive manicure too. We're not surprised at her act of kindness. However, Tanya Tran, a Da-Vi Nails headquarters representative, said she does not believe Peters was turned away because she moves too much or because she has a disability.

"Angela [Peters] said she only had one hour to get her manicure done". "It makes me feel good, but it's very overwhelming".

"I forgive the nail people for not doing my nails", Peters told ABC News in a statement. "When people do us wrong we must forgive".

Harris hopes this will inspire others to treat people with disabilities in the same way they would like to be treated. I didn't really want her day to be ruined. "I don't want anyone fired, I just [want to] educate people that people with different challenges like being in a wheelchair, we can have our own business and get our nails done like anyone else".

Ebony says she watched the nail salon, located just a few feet over, refuse to do Angela's nails, and chose to do something about it.

The three plan to continue their friendship, already scheduling a dinner at Peters' favorite restaurant in town.
