Fast-food retailer KFC have launched a line of rather odd yet edible nail polishes that taste like its famous fried chicken flavours. They weren’t kidding when they said their chicken was finger looking good…
Sadly (and yes I say sadly as although part of me thinks my nails smelling of chicken is disgusting I do so want to try it out just once. Don’t act like you don’t!) The limited edition nail polishes are being released in Hong Kong, so let’s all keep our fingers that don’t currently smell like chicken crossed that they are sold in the
The polishes created by the marketing company Ogilvy & Mather teamed up with the spice company McCormick made two shades, Original Recipe is a nude shade, while Hot & Spicy is a fiery orange colour.
Ogilvy & Mather creative director John Koay told Ad Week: “The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavour, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish.”
KFC also provided information on how to apply these alien polishes, they wrote: "Simply apply and dry like regular nail polish and then lick - again and again and again to taste why the world's favourite chicken is Finger Lickin' Good," they wrote.
So if you love KFC and you’re a prolific nail biter then I’m sure this news has at least made your day. Personally I can’t eat KFC as I’m allergic to what they cook the chicken in so unless I want fingers the size of houses I may have to pass on trying this bizarre beauty launch.
I would love to know what your thoughts are on the KFC beauty launch, leave your thoughts and opinions down in the comments!
