Students Create Roofie Alert Nail Polish

Nail Polish
A group of students at North Carolina State University are combatting date rape with nail polish. They’ve created Undercover Colors, a line of polishes that help wearers identify if their drinks have been exposed to the date rape drug. The Facebook page for the company states:
With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong. Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators. We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault.
 
According to Cosmopolitan, Undercover Colors has raised $250,000 from investors and won North Carolina State’s Entrepreneurship Initiative award. Its polishes, however, are still being tested.
