Giving Back

Because everyone deserves to feel polished.

Since July 27th 2019 Somer has donated over 130 manicures worth over $2,000 !

What do you do to volunteer in the Tampa Bay community?

  • I provide free manicures to the residents at a memory care facility twice a month.
  • I also volunteer with an organization that helps rehabilitate local survivors of human trafficking. Along with food pick up and project assisting, I also donate manicures in the form of graduation presents once the survivors have graduated from the program.

What Assisted Living Facility and Organization do you work with?

Where did your idea for volunteering come from?

  • Inspired by my husband, Chris Palmer, I formed the idea while listening to him tell me of his fond memories with the late Bill Sharpstein, founder and president of Gold Coast Greyhound Adoptions. As a foster for GCGA, Chris along with Bill and other volunteers would bring rescued greyhounds to sit and visit with residents at local assisted living and memory care facilities. From Chris’s volunteering experiences, I formed the idea to combine my passion for nail art with my compassion for people.

Why are you so passionate about giving away free manicures?

  • The “Always Polished Life” is a state of mind. It doesn’t mean to be “dressed to the nines”, it means to feel “dressed to the nines”. Everyone deserves to feel that way, but we don’t always have that ability. I want to offer that feeling to as many people as I can for as long as I can.

How can others get involved?

  • When I become your nail tech, you support my humanitarianism goals. From the profits I make at Always Polished Life, LLC I am am able to buy the supplies needed to continue to donate professional manicures to the women (and sometimes men) of Seasons of Largo and the survivors of human trafficking at the Florida Dream Center Rehabilitation Program.
  • Help me continue providing these services for free to deserving girls and women (and sometimes men) by becoming my client, feeling polished, and helping others feel polished too!
