Fast food chain KFC launches flavoured nail polish
Brand new to the world of weird, but possibly wonderful. Fried chicken flavoured nail polish! Yes, we know it’s an odd one to say the least but could it be the answer to those dreaded diet cravings? Read on…
KFC Hong Kong has revealed two limited edition flavoured nail polishes created in conjunction with marketing agency, Ogilvy & Mather. Taking the food company’s tagline of ‘Finger Lickin’ Good’ to new heights.
Nail polish never tasted so good!
Stylishly packed and presented, the polish glides on as normal and when dry, can be licked over and over, retaining the renowned flavour we all know and love for the duration of wear.
Working alongside food technologists at the makers of KFC’s famously secret batter mix, natural ingredients were sourced for the two nail polish flavours which are based on the brands favourite recipes, Original and Hot & Spicy.
John Koay, creative director at Ogilvy & Mather, comments: “The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavour, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish.
“This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong.”
KFC is not the first company to turn its product into cosmetics. Kid Licks manufactures organic edible nail polish in flavours like Beet Red and Sour Carrot Orange. The fast food chain KFC hasn’t said exactly what’s in its polishes but Kid Licks uses corn starch and acacia to keep their finger paints sticky and shiny.
