Four male students from North Carolina State University are trying with their own hands, to end violations in dating. To be more precise, with the hands of their friends, girlfriends and female defenders.
Ankesh Madan, Stephen Gray, Tyler Confrey-Maloney and Tasso Von Windheim have invented a nail polish called “Undercover Colors” (undercover Colors) changing tone when touched by some kind of drug for rape.

According to the description of the Facebook page ” Undercover Colors “, its main goal is to protect your loved ones and those women who have no one present who can protect them .

According to its website, in the United States, 18% of women will be sexually assaulted at least once in their life. That’s almost one in five women in our country (USA). You may not know them, but these women should not go unnoticed, they have a face and an identity. They are our daughters, our girlfriends, and our friends.

This varnish is an innovative step towards more effective for the prevention of rape in bars and at parties systems. The company calls itself as “the first fashion company that works to prevent sexual assault.”

The brilliant idea of ‚Äč”Undercover Colors” combines the style of a classic nail polish with chemicals that detect Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB (liquid ecstasy).

With enamel position, women can analyze their drinks to just put a finger on it. The company expects that future violators will be afraid of the potential impact that might have to be caught trying drugging a woman.

Undercover Colors earned $ 100,000 in the competition of “Kairos Society” ( an ‚Äčinternational non-profit organization that seeks to develop entrepreneurs from different universities around the world) in early August.

But to make a reality of his invention, the co-founders are asking for donations from all those who want to support this cause.
