They are located in Australia (the au in the web address was the first clue) and don't appear to ship the Young Nails stuff to the USA (would be flammable materials). Foreign distributors have different contracts and regs than USA distributors.

So, yes, I think that they are probably legit, but that most likely won't help you living in Tennessee. You will do better purchasing from distributors in the USA.
YN Does have some US distributors though.
Oh i was wondering what the au was for thanks for the replies.
As you can see, I'm from Australia and yes I can confirm this website is legit and all above board.

We have many nail supply companies here that stock a few top brands plus their own not so well known brands.
For instance, a lot of people think (here anyway) that you can only get CND products from CND Australia but there are a number of other stockists that sell CND.
I think it's the companies way of making sure that their product is available to every state.
The AFDA logo at the top right of that website is our Australian Professional Fingernail Association and it the only group who does what they can to keep our industry in a good clean healthy state because this industry is not regulated here in Australia and this is why we also have our fair share of horror stories. The AFDA fight very hard to get our government to regulate our industry but so far it's falling on deaf ears sadly.
We heavily promote our techs here to only use approved AFDA schools and suppliers.

Some suppliers here do ship overseas but not all products. So it just depends on the individual company I suppose and what rules they must abide by, by our postage service here which is pretty strict.
