The New Nail Polish That Aims to Prevent Assault

This week, beauty joined forces with science for a good cause: Four North Carolina State University students have created Undercover Colors, a nail polish that changes shades when it comes into contact with common date rape drugs like Gamma Hydroxy Butyrate (GHB), Rohypnol (also known as a "roofie"), and Xanax. Still in the development stages, the founders hope it will help women detect suspicious drinks with a quick finger swirl. They also aim to spread awareness about the prevalence of female sexual assault—especially on college campuses—and to intimidate would-be assaulters.

What do you think? Would you wear this polish? Let us know in the comments.
