KFC has launched edible nail polish, taking its “finger lickin’ good” slogan to a new level.

“Yes, it is actually a real thing,” said Anna Mugglestone, marketing and communications director for Ogilvy & Mather Group in Hong Kong, the agency running the campaign, per The New York Times. “I tried it myself in the office when they were doing testing.”

She said the polish, offered in original, and hot and spicy flavors, tastes like chicken.

The polish, produced through a partnership between Ogilvy & Mather Group and McCormick and Company, could be available by the second half of this year, the Times said.

"The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavor, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish," Ogilvy creative director John Koay said, according to Adweek. "This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong."

Fashion publications have reported the news with a mix of reactions.

"After recovering from our immediate 'OMG BUT WHY' and 'NO REALLY, WHY THOUGH' reactions to this news, we couldn't help but notice that weirdly, the polish actually looks kind of pretty," Allure said.

The nail polish is featured in a YouTube video.



Twitter users seemed incredulous.
