A team of students from North Carolina has come up with a new nail polish that detects date rape drugs and keeps women safe from being a victim of sexual assault.

Undercover Colors nail polish, which hopes to be the "first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault", changes color when in contact with date rape drugs like Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB, Cnet reported.

Undercover Colors said on their Facebook page that their goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime and with their nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger.

While the nail polish is still in the early experimental stages, the team has already raised 100,000 dollars for product development and is still searching for additional investors.
