Collection: KFC 2016 Summer, Edible Nail Polish
KFC—yes, the FRIED CHICKEN company—has released chicken-flavored nail polish in Hong Kong.
Part of me feels like they’re over a month late for April Fool’s Day, but the other part is dying to get my greasy hands on these polishes, which come in Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy.
It’s a huge shame to hear, however, that the polishes “are entirely made of edible ingredients: spice blends suspended in starch, with vegetable gum added so they stick to your finger nails for a day or so, according to a spokeswoman at Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, the advertising agency behind the polishes.
“With no preservatives, each batch – made by spice company McCormick in Singapore – must be refrigerated and lasts for only five days.”—BBC UK
What were they thinking?! Awwww. Guess I won’t be getting to try these, after all.
Whatever. I like Popeye’s better, anyway!
