Colonel Sanders is getting in the beauty business.

In perhaps the most unlikely pairing in nail polish history, the fried chicken conglomerate is said to be introducing a line of ‘Finger Lickin’ nail polish for KFC Hong Kong.

The kicker: It’s edible nail polish, so not only will you sport some very decidedly KFC colors, but your nails will also taste like the brand’s spices (more specifically, Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy). “To use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick—again and again and again,” the brand said in a statement.



“The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavor, but also to dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish,” says Ogilvy (they worked with the food technologists over at McCormick to create it) creative director John Koay. “This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong.”

The bottles are actually pretty sleek-looking and the shades are on trend, but if you are up for trying—or tasting—it, it sounds like it will only be available in Hong Kong. 

No word on if it contains real chicken or not.
