       My daughter, reading this over my shoulder, said, "Edible fingernail polish? I want some of that!"

       Chewing nails is not just a bad idea because nailpolish tastes bad, it's a bad idea because you end up with ragged, short nails. Sometimes it can cause bleeding, hangnails and maybe even infection. I wouldn't condone it.

       I sat here shaking for a moment, scared to open this "idea", thinking that possibly sparki was back and no longer fascinated with just pony-tail holders.....   

       If this starts a whole trend of fingernail polish ideas, I just may pull a "blisswaugs enema"

       this is obviously all wrong, it should be fingernail flavoured polish for stuff. paint say an apple with it > one lovely shiny fingernail flavoured good-for-you bit of fruit. viola!

       Isn't this a bad habit we're all supposed to be breaking? Although I do wonder if it would help out on a nerve-wreaking, nail-biting job interview to be able to pop a finger in the mouth and get a comforting taste of rocky road brownies or macaroni and cheese.

       While we are at it, how about pills which result in flavoured bogeys (US - boogers I believe), earwax etc. We could run the gamut of bad habits and seek to encourage each one with flavoursome rewards

       Flavored/Edible Toenail Polish is a great idea for footlovers and their solemates. Putting it on will be as must fun as licking / sucking it off. The first one who invents this will be a millionaire!

       As a seasoned nail-biter I can tell you that I ain't got no nails to paint. Painting the 10 ragged stubs I have would seem a little like gilding a turnip.   

       People who paint their nails aren't nibblers and people who are biters don't paint their nails.   

       Kinda like inventing a hair clip for bald people.

       well, paint them anyway - it helps break the habit.

       At first I was going vote againt it because its disgusting to see people biting their nails and then spitting out the fragments. We certainly did not need one more thing to encourage it. But now that Mod put a different spin on it, this is definately a multi-million dollar idea for toe sucking! Not that I am into that kind of thing.. but the toe suckers will go crazy for it.. (please notify me once it hits the market)

       I was chewing on my nails this morning, enjoying the spicy effect of having diced a few dozen jalpenos and serranos last night, when this idea hit me.   

       [+] for a great idea, and beating me to the punch by 8 years.

       This is very, very sick and wrong.   

       When will it be commercially available ?
