NEW YORK, NY MAY 10, 2016
Something about it containing a drying agent makes us actively avoid licking our nail polish. Something about KFC accidentally serving one woman a fried kidney makes us not want to frequent the fast food establishment. Yet we’re oddly intrigued by the chicken chain’s new “Finger Lickin’ Good,” limited-edition, flavored — and supposedly edible — nail polishes.
As part of KFC Hong Kong’s new marketing campaign, the brand teamed up with McCormick, the makers of its secret spice mix, to create two savory polishes: “Original,” a glitter-flecked nude, and “Hot & Spicy,” a bright, sparkly blood orange.
For now, our dilemma is moot — the double release is limited to Hong Kong, though there is talk of mass production of either “Original” or “Hot & Spicy” after locals elect their favorite tasty hue.
