The “finger lickin’ good” taste of KFC chicken can now remain on your hands long after you wash, should that sound the least bit appetizing.

Ogilvy & Mather has paired with the company that provides KFC’s blend of 11 herbs and spices to produce … edible nail polishes, reports AdWeek.

“Yes, it is actually a real thing,” Ogilvy & Mather rep Anna Mugglestone tells the New York Times. “It tastes like chicken. It’s crazy.”

“To use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick—again and again and again ,” the company says.

The polishes, only available in Hong Kong, come in original and spicy flavors, but just one will be mass produced based on a consumer vote, reports NPR.

Mugglestone says there’s been “vast interest” so far, but many seem grossed out by the idea.

“Just when you thought KFC couldn’t possibly come up with something more disgusting than the Double Down Dog,” writes one Twitter user.

“Original is actually pretty cute for spring … if, you know, it didn’t taste like fried chicken,” quips Glamour.com.
