Nail polish to prevent rape

2 September 2014

undercovercolors A new nail polish is being developed that will deter rapists. We've had the anti-rape mobile app, as well as a brilliant vagina dentata thing, but now we've got something a little more easy to have about your person.

That's the idea behind Undercover Colors, a nail polish that will change colour is there's any date rape drugs been slipped into your shandy.

While the product has yet to go on sale, the company have stressed that have been working to ensure that any kind of drug can be discovered, rather than put the nail polish out there and fail.

When fully tested, they plan to crowd-source a money making campaign.

The company's site says: "While date rape drugs are often used to facilitate sexual assault, very little science exists for their detection. Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime."

"Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators."

"We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault."

This could potentially be amazing, more news as and when.
