KFC launch two edible nail polishes and we don’t know WHAT to think


OK we admit it, it sounds like something you might read on April the 1st, but all signs point to this bizarre story being legit.

According to reports, KFC fans can relive that famous finger-licking good moment as often as they want following the launch of the fast food chain's new nail polish range. Yes, you heard us.

Created by advertising firm Ogilvy & Mather and food technicians at McCormick – the good folk behind KFC’s spice and herb mix – this range of nail polish comes in two classic flavours, original and hot and spicy.

Speaking out amid the launch, KFC released a statement, advising: "To use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick – again and again and again”, 

Launched as part of a campaign in Hong Kong, the polishes, which come in orange and nude shades, were available to the public for two weeks in order to establish the most popular flavour to push for mass production. 

"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," explained John Koay, creative director at Ogilvy & Mather.

Seriously, you still with us?
