Kerry Washington, Scandal’s head gladiator helping Shonda Rhimes own ABC on Thursday nights, is in collaboration with OPI Products for their fall/winter 2016 Washington DC collection.
The Washington DC collection announcement introduced two new colors, We The Female and CIA (Color Is Awesome). Appropriate for fall/winter, the shades of red and blue are warm and deep.
“This is going to be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to testing out new colors on the red carpet. The fun, for me, is that nail lives in the crossover space between fashion and beauty. I love to play with nail color on the red carpet and explore new shades,” says Kerry.
OPI announced on their website, “We are so excited to finally announce our new Creative Ambassador, Kerry Washington joins the OPI family for 2016!”
Both Kerry and OPI shared news of their collaboration via Instagram.
OPI Co-founder and Creative Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann stated, “When the opportunity came around to have Kerry join OPI as our Creative Ambassador, the answer was instantly yes. She empowers women through her sophisticated style, humor and confidence. Most of all, she has a huge love of nail lacquer and has worn OPI for years and years. I’m looking forward to working with Kerry in 2016 to create some new and fabulous OPI shades.”
The Washington DC collection will be available on August 3rd.
