When a woman with cerebral palsy was turned away at a nail salon because of her shaky hands, Walmart cashier Ebony Harris jumped in to do her nails for her.

According to KMOV, Angela Peters uses a wheelchair and was refused service because the condition caused her hands to shake too much.

When Harris noticed this, she decided to help Peters by taking a break from work. The two women then went out selecting a color for Peters’ nails.

They sat at a Subway restaurant as Harris helped Peters get the perfect manicure. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.

Harris told the news outlet :

"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 recalled how Peters kept saying "sorry" because the Walmart cashier took a break from her job. But it was not really a problem for Harris, who enjoyed helping Peters out.
