20 Vintage Nail Polish Ads From the 1980s

There are many great nail polish designs that were introduced to the general public in the 1980s. Nail polish back then was just being made in small amounts, and it was mainly done as a way to mimic the look of natural nails without actually having to use real nails.

Many people in the 1980s also believed that polishes made from acrylics were more durable than those that were created from other types of substances. It is kind of difficult to pinpoint exactly what kind of nail polish was being used at the time, so all you really need to know about is how nail polish was back then.
