You know that moment when you鈥檙e trying to eat healthy but all you really want is some fried chicken so you turn to your edible nail polish instead? Uh, ya neither do we. However, that鈥檚 now a real thought you might have thanks to KFC鈥檚 foray into the beauty industry. We never thought we say this, but allow us to introduce you to the fast food chain鈥檚 two new edible nail polishes.


According to Adweek, KFC Hong Kong has worked with food technologists over at McCormick (the spice company who helped created the chicken company鈥檚 secret seasoning blend) to create two new edible nail polishes that are not only inspired by fried chicken but actually TASTE like them. The two polishes will be reflective of KFC鈥檚 most popular chicken recipes: Original and Hot + Spicy.

The brand told Adweek 鈥淭o use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick 鈥 again and again and again.鈥

Weirdness aside, we have to admit that KFC has done a pretty killer job on the marketing of this WTF product. Take a quick glance and the polishes look a lot like something you鈥檇 find at Sephora. And the colors? We鈥檇 actually wear them. Rather than coming in variations of 鈥渇ried chicken brown鈥 they鈥檙e more of a coral red (Hot & Spicy) and a sparkly nude (original).

If you鈥檙e dying to see this weird beauty product for yourself, don鈥檛 head to your local KFC just yet. The brand has released a music video around the project (see above) and is inviting residents of Hong Kong to choose which flavor should go into mass production. After that decision has been made, hopefully the bottles will make their way stateside.
