Drug-Detecting Nail Polish Exists IRL

This is cool, you guys.

What if we told you that you can get a manicure AND protect yourself from date rape? Sounds odd, right?

But a couple of male undergraduate students from North Carolina State University created nail polish called Undercover Colors—which changes color in the presence of date rape drugs, like Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB or Gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid.

How does it work? So let's say you're drinking by the bar, getting your flirt on, and a hot guy offers you a drink. Instead of using a stirrer to mix your drink, you dip your finger. If your nail's color changes, then you know you're in trouble. 

It's not exactly hygienic or subtle, but we're all for a beauty invention that'll help you ward off the bad guys, while still looking pretty and polished.

And any beauty product that may potentially save your life is a good thing.
