This Vintage Ad Will Drive You Krazy

You know what's crazier than craziness? Kraziness. Whenever you mutate a word to give it wacky spelling, its meaning is multiplied indefinitely. And I think this '80s ad for press-on nails, as you will see, is pret-ty krazy. Anyone remember these?

Maybe they're called that because they're glued on with Krazy Glue.

I remember trying these once or twice as a teen. I HATED them. I wore some to prom and ripped them off immediately afterwards.

I don't know what's worse, the high-pitched voice, the hair, the clothes, the dancing, or the god-awful stick-on nails. This makes me SO glad I don't remember any of my life in the 80s.

Oh yes, my sister and I used to have some Lee Press-on nails in the mid to late 80s...we thought they were the coolest.

I was probably a baby when these were "in", so I don't remember them. They're definitely interesting to say the least. Stephscloset, they still sell them. When I'm at the drug store looking at makeup you can occasionally find them in the fake nail section. They still have the kind that are pre-colored too. They are't quite as pointy, but they still exist! haha

This is so funny! I just had a conversation with my mom, that I haven't seen press on nails in years. This was a staple when I was in HS! :)
