Nail polish could detect date rape drugs in drinks

RALEIGH, N.C. — Four engineering students are working on a nail polish that would detect date rape drugs mixed into drinks.

The students from North Carolina State University formed a company called Undercover Colors.

They are using a Facebook page to raise awareness for their project, “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.”

They have more than $100,000 in startup money to fund research and development.

The students said they came up with the idea after knowing women who have been victims of date rape drugs such as Xanax, Rohypnol and GHB.
