Nail biters rejoice: There’s a new polish you can eat

Nail polish is pretty high up on my list of things I never want to eat, but a new product from the US has me reconsidering my stance.

There are the weird (hello Tokyo bananas), the wonderful (candy jewellery) and the downright wacky (edible underwear we’re looking at you) when it comes to eating the seemingly inedible. Nail polish is pretty high up on my list of things I never want to eat, but a new product from the US has me reconsidering my stance.

Kid Licks Nail Polish is organic, edible and comes in three flavours: sour carrot orange, barley grass green and beet red. Tasty, right? Created by Californian couple Audrey Amara and Josh Kroot who mixed up “all sorts of goo and consulted with chemists and food safety experts” to create a product that would “make their kid’s play time just a little bit healthier and a little bit less stressful”. Sounds better than a mouthful of Play Doh and Clag Glue if you ask me. Could this even be the playground equivalent of clean eating?

The team at US food mag Bon Appetit road-tested the polish, but with comments like “faint whiffs of compost” and “with the aroma of a fermenting juice bar”, this polish may be better at discouraging nail biting than finger lickin’.

Seriously people, if we’re going to make anything edible can somebody please just create a corn chip sombrero a la Despicable Me 2. I’ll bring the guacamole.
