Good Ideas: Date Rape Drug Detecting Fingernail Polish

A group of students from North Carolina State University are developing Undercover Colors, a line of fingernail polishes that can detect the presence of common date rape drugs (GHB, Rohypnol and Xanax) by swirling a finger in your drink (previously: drug detecting straws, cups and lip balm). If the nail polish changes color, drugs have been detected. If the nail polish doesn't change color, you just swirled a finger in your drink. A small price to pay for knowing whether or not your date is a potential rapist. Now give me the drink. I'll chug it and still kick his ass twice before I black out.

Thanks to Lara, who mentioned hoping they come in metallic colors.
