 ANC is a powder manicure dipping system designed to help you achieve a perfect manicure. This product makes your nails light, strong, shiny, and naturally beautiful every time – plus it’s environmentally friendly!

ANC is odorless, light-weight, flexible, and gentle on your nail bed. And because the product adds Calcium & Vitamin E when applied to your nails, ANC is actually healthy for your your natural nails!

The best part? ANC manicures will last up to 3 weeks without the use of harsh chemicals!

Professional Manicure


Not only does taking care of your nails keep you looking healthy & polished, but your nails also provide important clues to your overall health. Broken, discolored, or misshapen nails can indicate nutritional deficiencies, infections, or skin conditions.

Some great personal nail care tips for you to start doing ASAP include:

Keeping your nails clean & dry, which will help to prevent skin infection, dryness, and tears.

Shape your nails straight across (not at a point) since pointed nails are weaker & can break more easily.

DO NOT bite or pick at your nails, since biting makes them much more easily infected.
