Eat chicken at your fingertips

People have gone crazy for nail arts and different colors of nail paints but one can get that crazy to introduce the whole new concept of chicken nail polish is hard to believe.

 

A crazy idea with even crazier taste, fast food giant KFC has taken the idea one step further with their edible nail polish that supposedly tastes like chicken.

 

KFC Hong Kong has released two nail polish colours, Hot & Spicy - an orange shade - and a nude shade called Original Recipe, embellished with their trademark red and white packaging and slogan "It's finger lickin' good".

 

The polish is "sourced from natural ingredients" which makes it completely edible and unique.

 

Following a taste-test, the BBC reported that although there was a taste there, it tasted more like spices than chicken.

 

"The spicy flavour tasted almost exactly like the paste used in KFC's hot & spicy chicken. It definitely lingered on the tongue, but we couldn't detect any fried chicken flavour. "It was same for original recipe polish: nice balance of spice accented by black pepper, but again, no chicken," BBCadded.

 

Reporters at the Wall Street Journal said it "glides on the nail but has trouble sticking and dries up quickly".

 

According to the T&C given in the nail paint bottle one must keep it refrigerated as it only lasts for five days.
