                                               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.
