Food chemists are good, but “Finger Lickin’ Good”? KFC is getting eaten alive over news that the fried chicken company is testing edible nail polish for customers in Hong Kong.

As CNN reports: “The nail polish comes in two flavors and colors: Original (kind of a beige) and Hot & Spicy (red). To use it, customers can paint the polish on their nails, let it dry, ‘and then lick — again and again and again.’

“KFC says the nail polish is ‘sourced from natural ingredients,’ perhaps in an effort to make customers feel safer about licking nail polish.”

Anna Mugglestone, spokeswoman for Ogilvy & Mather Group in Hong Kong, the agency running the campaign, told The New York Times: “Yes, it is actually a real thing. I tried it myself in the office when they were doing testing.”

KFC released the above music video to promote the nail polish — which founder Col. Harland David Sanders might only wrinkle his nose at.
