Here’s the Chicken-Flavored Nail Polish No One Asked for

KFC, a company with a history of offering questionable poultry products to the masses, has debuted an edible chicken-flavored nail polish—giving bold new meaning to chicken fingers and finger lickin’ bad. Sadly for you, the product is only available in Hong Kong.

The nail polish comes in two distinct flavors, Original and Hot n’ Spicy.

“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,” Joan Koay of Oglivy and Mather, the agency behind the campaign, told CNN.

The fast-food giant released the following video to help promote the product:

Intrigued? Just make sure you’ve dropped the bad habit of biting your nails before experimenting with KFC’s latest offering.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
