Angela Peters, who has cerebral palsy - a congenital disorder that can cause involuntary movements or tremors of arms, hands, legs and feet - was out shopping at the Walmart Supercenter in Burton, Mich., when she chose to get a manicure at the nail salon Da-Vi Nails inside the supercenter.
They bought nail polish and headed to the nearby Subway where Harris painted Peters' nails. The two women picked out the colors together and sat down by Subway for a manicure.
"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", she said. "I enjoy conversation with her".
The employees told Angela Peters that due to her cerebral palsy, the manicurist could not paint her nails because her hands were too shaky.
Peters, 36, has cerebral palsy, which can make her hands shake.
"We're not trying to bash the nail salon, we're not trying to make them lose customers, make them look bad", Harris said, Yahoo Lifestyle reported.
"I told her she's a blessing to us, to anybody, not just me. She wants to look pretty, you know, and so why can't she?"
Though Harris was happy to help, she says neither she nor Peters want to slam Da-Vi Nails. "I just wanted to do her nails and I didn't want her day to be ruined". "And so why can't she", Harris added.

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.
"I was a little nervous and was shaking because I didn't want to mess her nails up", Harris told ABC News.
"I was like making sandwiches and I was watching her like", Tasia Smith said of the scene Thursday that brought her to tears. She snapped a photo of Harris and Peters, posted it on her Facebook and it went viral. "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. "I said you're fine". So it's awesome, ' she said on the fame following her manicure to WNEM.
Walmart also spoke highly of Harris's work.
Ebony Harris, who works at a nearby Walmart and often speaks with Ms Peters, chose to use her lunch break to help the MI woman. We're not surprised at her act of kindness.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
Harris has no qualms with the nail salon, but she hopes her actions inspire others to treat people with disabilities the way they would want to be treated themselves.
"I forgive the nail people for not doing my nails", Peters told ABC News in a statement.
