Wybron has released version 2.0 of the Gel Swatch Library App. The update is free for all current users, and includes updates and new features, including more control over search results, the ability to see how a gel will look on different light sources, and a stacking feature which allows users to stack two colors together and see the resulting color. To celebrate the release and allow more people to experience the app, Wybron is giving 100 copies of the app away in a promo entitled 50 Shades of Grape. While there are only three “grape” titled gels in the library, thanks to the stacking feature, users can create 47 or more shades of grape.
