Young Nails Announces Synergy Gel Precision Applicator

by NAILS Staff | June 13, 2019

Young Nails has announced their newest product: Synergy Gel Precision Applicator, a hard gel dispensed directly onto the nail from the bottle. Young Nails’ Greg Salo explained that the brand developed the product because they wanted a hard gel that would be faster and simpler for nail techs to apply and would be easy for nail techs to learn to use. The brand announced the news first to the Young Nails Facebook group, where they also provided live demos, then premiered it to their YouTube channel and Instagram. Launching with four colors (Concealer Pink, Concealer Peach, Clear Sculptor, and White Sculptor), the product will be available to order from www.youngnails.com starting June 29. Young Nails also announced that they will launch a new lamp.
