That's different.

From the Wall Street Journal:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

KFC is taking its "finger-lickin’ good" slogan literally.

The fast-food chain has applied its secret fried chicken recipe to something that, under normal circumstances, should never be ingested: nail polish.

The varnish, which will only be released in Hong Kong, comes in two flavors, Original and Hot & Spicy (brown or red), and is made with natural ingredients that are all edible.

It's called "Finger Lickin' Good" Nail Polish."

Because it's made with actual food ingredients, each bottle has an expiration date of five days — after bottling.

Ingredients include original recipe seasoning, vegetable gum, edible color, vegetable oil and maltodextrin, a food additive made from starch.

It needs to be ingested within five minutes of opening.

Unlike regular nail polish, it can't be reused once the bottle is opened.

As for the finger-licking polish, the mixture is gloopy but upon applying doesn't quite adhere to nails.

It dries quickly and you must put on several coats before it sticks as varnish.

The taste is strong, less reminiscent of fried chicken than a concentration of spices stuck to your finger.

Then, of course, there's the fact that you are licking your nails, an odd act regardless of the flavors involved.

At present KFC has no plans to release the product to the public.

It has made 300-500 limited edition bottles and is taking a Facebook poll to decide which of the two flavors it may one day release commercially.
