KFC is redefining the term "finger lickin' good"—literally. For the first time ever, the fast-food chain is introducing an edible nail polish in Hong Kong that tastes like its iconic fried chicken.
The Colonel is partnering with advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather, as well as its longtime spice provider, McCormick & Company, to create both Original and Hot & Spicy-flavored nail polishes (a.k.a., the perfect accessories for your next big date). According to Adweek, the nail polish is supposedly sourced from "natural ingredients"—although mass-produced fried foods and "glossy" cosmetics don't exactly scream "organic" to us.
"The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavor, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish," Ogilvy's creative director John Koay said in a statement. "This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong."
As of right now, KFC Hong Kong is only teasing the nail polish, allowing customers to choose which flavor they think should be mass produced.
With Mother's Day right around the corner, the polish could actually be the perfect gift for mom. Don't believe us? According to data from Yum! Brands, KFC's sales spike 50% on Mother's Day, with the fried chicken chain serving roughly 370,000 families on the holiday each year.
