Science and Fashion team up to create a FUNCTIONAL nail polish that could potentially identify drinks laced with date rape drugs!

Pretty much anything combining fashion and science/technology (two of my passions) will grab my attention — like the 3D printed bodice and wings featured in the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show… move over laser cut, hello print my own clothes!  Now THAT’S a trend I could follow! — so when I heard about the latest venture by a team of college students to create a nail polish that reacts when it comes into contact with several key date rape drugs (Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB) I had to know more

In fact, just hours after hearing about it I was posting the news on my Twitter account to spread the word

The product is not on the market yet, but by following their page on Facebook – Undercover Colors, and their Twitter feed we can learn more and help support the great cause. 


Go read the featured article on CNET and consider donating to their R&D fund




I can’t say that enough.


Let’s put the power back into the hands of our sisters/daughters/friends. 


Unfortunately, there are a lot of us out there who have either been affected directly by attack or are close to someone who has.


Spread the word.
