KFC Created A ‘Finger Licking Good’ Fingernail Polish (No, Seriously)

Have they gone too far? KFC has been known to come up with a few off the wall flavors and recipes. Remember the “Double Down” sandwich that had chicken breasts as the bread? And before that was a the chicken bowl that used mashed potatoes and gravy instead of rice. Now, the worldwide chicken franchise is trying something new: edible fingernail polish.

And just like the chicken you can order at the counter, the nail polish also 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.
