Perhaps you remember Alanna Wall from our coverage of her last September in “Meet NYFW Youngest Nail Technician,” the then 14 year-old nail technician was assisting the lead nail artist at the coveted Hood By Air show. Since September, Alanna, has graduated from Steve Harvey’s Dreamers Academy 2016 class while also serving as the nail concept designer for yet another New York Fashion Week season for two collections: Paul Penaranda and Demoo Parkchoonmoo.
Practice makes Polished gearing up for the 2nd Annual Polished Girlz Ball with a few of my favorite Girlz! “You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” Winnie-the-Pooh : @keithfoster_ @amanda_odell13 @che_baby17 @sage_knight2 #antoniostrong
Wall started her non profit organization, Polished Girlz at the tender age of 10 with a mission to “polish the nails and have mini manicure parties for children with social, emotional or physical specials need including patients that are hospitalized.” Along with her Polished Girlz crew, the organization has now polished the nails of over 14,000 girls who are hospitalized. Now Wall is expanding her reach and teaming with infamous lacquer company Azature Black Diamond Nail Lacquer to benefit the Polished Girlz organization.
If the Azature brand sounds familiar, it’s because they are synonymous with luxury in the nail world. Azature was responsible for the uber luxurious million dollar White Diamond Nail Lacquer that launched in October of last year they also created Kelly Osbourne’s 2012 Emmy Awards manicure that was a valued at a whopping $250,000. In a press junket about the collaboration with Polished Girlz the designer stated, “Alanna has been such an inspiration to me for some time now and I just can’t wait to launch this color with her. Seeing the amazing work the Polished Girlz organization did last year at the First Annual Polished Girlz Ball made such an impact on me that I was moved to help.”
I am so honored to announce that @azature has re-released this Stunning blue in partnership with Polished Girlz! And again this year he will be not only a Major Sponsor of my 2nd Annual Polished Girlz Ball but he will also be styling my jewelry and manicure for the Ball! What a blessing to have such support. I can’t wait to share more about the Amazing companies and Celebrities that are helping to make this Ball a true fairytale night for the kids. If you would like to purchase this limited release I will add the link to my bio. #polishedgirlz #nailventures #nevertooyoung #glamgonegood #dreamteam #alanna #dreambig #polishedgirlzball #pgball #azature #azaturenailpolish #azaturegivesback
