Amazing!! New Nail Polish Helps Women Fight Back Against Date Rape

Undercover Colors Nail Polish

According to White House reports, one in five women has been sexually assaulted while at college. It's called date rape, and it occurs by slipping drugs into alcohol to render victims vulnerable. According to the National Institute of Justice and the Center for Disease Control, 35 out of every 1,000 women on a college campus are raped. Four students at North Carolina State University may have found one way to prevent it.

Nail polish that detects drugs

Four students at North Carolina State University developed a new nail polish that is designed to detect drugs. Women who wear the polish need only to stir their drink with their finger. The polish will change color when it comes in contact with Rohypnol, Xanax, GHB and other popular date rape drugs. The product is called Undercover Colors, and it's purpose is to help women protect themselves against rape.

Product still in testing

Although the product is still in testing mode, college students and parents of college students everywhere are hoping it will be on the market soon. The product has so far received positive feedback, including 26,000 likes on Facebook.

The product holds much promise to not only help women protect themselves, but deter perpetrators from trying to drug women and committing date rape.
