(Aug. 27, 2014) – Could nail polish help stop date rape?

That’s the question some undergraduate engineering students at North Carolina State University hope to answer with a “yes.”

They’ve developed nail polish that can test a drink to see if it’s laced with a date rape drug. They’re calling it Undercover Colors.

If a woman is wearing the nail polish, all she has to do is stir the drink with her finger. If the polish changes color, it means the drink has something in it that shouldn’t be there, like Rohypnol, Xanax or GHB (Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid).

The students are looking to fund their idea at UndercoverColors.com.
