KFC’s Nail Polish That Tastes Like Chicken Is Wrong in So Many Ways

When we first heard that KFC was launching a chicken-flavored edible nail polish, we threw up in our mouths a little, before we had a very real “wtf?” moment. The cruelty that inquisitive social animals such as chickens endure to end up in a drive-through bucket is appalling. And nail polish that has been tested on gentle animals such as rabbits and mice is equally disturbing. But we got to thinking, anything can be veganized nowadays, so why not this? Using KFC’s very sound logic, we’ve paired cruelty-free nail polish and vegan chicken recipes and products that you’ll definitely want to try out together. Because obviously.

wet n wild’s fun colors would look spectacular paired with some rainbow zucchini rolls made with Tofurky Slow Roasted Thai Basil Chik’n. If you haven’t paired these two things in your head already, you’re obviously very behind on today’s chicken/polish trends.

Zucchini Rolls with Tofurky Thai Basil Chick'n

How about pairing an adorable wing* manicure using ncLA polish with buffalo-style cauliflower wings*?

*Neither of these actually hurt or stole wings from live chickens.
The Body Shop sells an orange polish that would 100 percent go really well with Trader Joe’s Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels.

Allow me to introduce Jack! Also… these morsels are great with TJ's vegetable fried rice. #vegan #veganfoodshare #traderjoes #vegansofig #plantbased #crueltyfree #traderjoesvegan #vegancommunity

Beyond Meat Feisty Buffalo Poppers would clearly go well with some hot pink polish by all-vegan company Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Clearly.

We couldn’t see a better pairing than this 100% Pure polish and a vegan chicken salad sandwich using Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips:

As a mommy gift I got a few new polishes. From @100percentpure with their creamy nail polish collection I have on 12:51 & Wedding. I love the combination!

Urban Decay has some bold colors that would look perfect wrapped around a vegan fried chicken sandwich.

Nails of the weekend: Urban Decay nail polish in Vice // Когда-то давно купила этот лак Urban Decay по двум причинам: 1) хотелось в свою коллекцию добавить лак от любимого makeup-бренда, 2) понравилось оформление флакона с черепом на крышечке. А подобных фиолетовых оттенков у меня много. Но и этот красивый, бесспорно.

Yep, perfecto.

So there you have it. We used KFC’s logic to make our most insane (re: creative) list yet.

Not into KFC’s latest marketing scheme? No worries. Living cruelty-free has never been easier, from what you eat to what you paint your nails with! Other cruelty-free vegan nail polish offerings include Acquarella, Flower Beauty, Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics, Manic Panic, Mineral Fusion, and Nubar. If in doubt, use our database to check the cruelty-free status of beauty brands.
