Buzzing: Edible nail polish from KFC

Edible nail polish from KFC

Chicken chain KFC's new Hong Kong marketing campaign is offering lickable, edible fingernail polish in two flavours: Original and Hot & Spicy.

The polish is made in conjunction with McCormick & Co, which produces the spices for KFC's chicken. It has yet to be mass produced, but could be available in the second half of this year.

Comments online ranged from sceptical to harsh.

"Gross/intriguing," fashion and lifestyle website Racked.com tweeted.

"Original is actually pretty cute for spring," Glamour.com wrote, "if, you know, it didn't taste like fried chicken."
