Vanishing Nailpolish Helps School Girls Avoid Detention

I never experienced the pain (or the pleasure) of attending an all-girls school when I was a kid, but I’m well-aware of the fine line these chicks walked — skirts were hiked up, tank tops were knotted, lipstick was applied, and your big sister’s Chanel nail polish was swiped off her dresser. But nail polish is one of the things that’s forbibben at many girls’ schools, which explains why a couple of industrious gals in the U.K. put their highschool science skills to good use and created nail color which “vanishes” under exposure to sunlight, thereby making it easy to wear the polish to school, but hide it from watchful hall monitors.
