How to Use
Apply a coat of desired polish. Add designs as desired. (Optional)
Apply a coat of True Colors Date Rape Detection Nail Polish.
Wash hands or apply hand sanitizer (especially if the drink is nonalcoholic)
Swirl a coated nail in the suspected drink
Wait for 5 to 10 seconds
Check the color of the polish: if it remains clear, then the drink does not contain one of the tested drugs; if it changes color, then the drink is drugged--the saturation of the color indicates the potency/concentration of the drug.
Remove with regular nail polish remover
Detection strips are very
, and generally only test for
one or two
of the multiple varieties of date-rape drugs.
True Colors Date Rape Detection Nail Polish is
easy to use
Since the polish appears clear, it can be applied over colored polish or in place of clear polish or topcoat.
Simply swirling a coated nail in a drink will indicate if the drink contains a date-rape drug; the polish will change color according to the drug and its concentration.
Users may also paint the polish on a straw or toothpick for equally accurate detection.

Gabba Hydroxybutric: (GHB)- Odorless and colorless
Ketamine: Comes as both a liquid and a white powder
Alcohol is also used commonly
The drug can be detected 24 to 60 hours after use depending on the drug
The effects of the drug can last from 8 to 24 hours making it hard for people to know for sure if drugs played a part.
College book stores and student stores
Organizations such as RAINN which focus on promoting safety and welfare
High School Health classes to increase awareness for a younger generation
Billboards and Commercials on the TV or radio

There would also be more funding towards research to developing more products that can target different markets.
