                                               About Us

The “Polished Girlz” nail team was started by then 10yo Alanna J.Wall.  Born in 2000, Alanna truly is a new millennium girl. She wanted to combine her love of drawing and nail design for different projects and she knew that she was too young to volunteer at most organizations. Nevertheless, Alanna's compassionate spirit made her want to share her talents with young ladies that were hospitalized or not feeling quite as “polished”, so she decided to start her own organization. Add a mission of hand washing, infection reduction, and a few like minded friends, and the “Polished Girlz” were born. Born to Rock, Born to Shine, and Born to Serve!

Fast forward through year one, and what started as a single girl with a dream and her mom, has grown into hundreds of children served and almost 100 registered volunteers and counting! We are excited to continue with Alanna's vision as it spreads throughout the United States and are quite excited to Polish the girls of Ghana West Africa in June 2012, in conjunction with the Brown Learning Center.

The Polished Girlz are available to polish for hospitals, support groups, chemotherapy centers, dialysis centers, and private referred clients. Please feel free to contact us at polishedgirlz@yahoo.com for additional information.

A Polished Party

Today we polished for the beautiful Girls of the Down Syndrome Association Happy Halloween Party. We polish for them every month, and every month we are excited about what stories our girls have, how well they are doing in school and how amazing their lives are. You see they have special needs but they are just as special if not more special than every other child that I have ever met. They had the coolest costumes ever, from Perfect Princess, to a Polished Pirate, a little ladybug, and a baby Buckeye (Go Ohio!)
I am grateful to Alanna for starting this organization to teach us all about caring for people that we would not have ever expected to meet, to care for and to love. I would like to think that these girls are just a chance encounter on life's road but I know that each and everyone of them will be a part of our lives forever. We went on a cruise and had to miss the month of August, while at sea Alanna remarked, "what about our girls, they will be waiting on us." The funny thing is that I felt the same way.
 You see, all my adult life I have been paid to be a nurse and I have had a remarkable life as a nurse, but I have never been so rich as working for this organization for free.
Happy Fall, Happy Halloween
~You go Girlz!
