Dear women who go to parties: Four college guys have created a nail polish that could save your life. Undercover Colors is a polish that, once in contact with a narcotic, changes color as a warning. The company isn't official yet. It can be, though. 

The creators, Tyler, Stephen, Ankesh and Tasso posted this message on the Undercover Colors Facebook page:

While date rape drugs are often used to facilitate sexual assault, very little science exists for their detection. Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime.

For our first product, we are developing a nail polish that changes color when it comes into contact with date-rape drugs. 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.
