KFC Hong Kong is Breaking the Norm With it’s New Finger Lickin’ Product

Spicy chicken flavored nail polish. I almost feel as if that sentence should be the whole article. It just leaves you wondering for a while.

KFC is going to extreme lengths to revive its name and be the topic everyone is talking about. Good or bad reviews, KFC wants it all.  They definitely beat the happy meal toy popularity and other tasteless marketing tactics.


Hong Kong is the home of this unbelievable creation, with the actual birthplace being the mind of Joan Koay, head of the advertising agency that KFC teamed up with. All it took was a look at a colleague’s manicured fingernails and a shiny light bulb lighted up over his head.

“Wouldn’t it be great if those tasted like KFC?” Koay asked. From that moment, the slogan “It’s Finger Lickin’ Good” once again had something to live for.

In a press release it was stated that the main goal of this product launch was “to appeal to young consumers’ love of food and fashion.”


Just to make things simple for the consumers, only two official flavors came out: “Original” and “Hot & Spicy.”  And the process is very simple. Apply and lick, as you would do with any other nail polish, except the licking part.

Koay was very excited for his creation. “It actually tastes like chicken,” he said. “And the smell is amazing.”

The half-ounce bottle of nail polish only lasts for one use on all ten fingernails, and it is claimed to be made with natural ingredients.
