Kerry Washington managed to find time in her busy schedule to capture the feel of Washington D.C. and America’s political climate in a few shades of nail polish. The Scandal star was tapped by Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, cofounder and brand ambassador for OPI to create the line.
“Kerry is a role model, style icon, nail lacquer lover and an absolute natural as our Creative Ambassador,” said Weiss-Fischmann. She exemplifies the spirit of Washington, D.C. women, and her bold approach to life is evident everywhere from her acting to her activism to her red carpet style.”
Kerry tells WWD in her latest cover story with the magazine, “Nails are at that interesting point where fashion and beauty meet.”
Washington who is known for her political activism, spoke about why the political process is so important to her and the country overall.
“For me, what is political is very personal,” she told WWD. “I love that we live in a participatory government, where our government reflects who we are. I also think we’re at a time of really needing to pay attention to protecting voting rights.”
The collection’s 15 shades hit stores on August 4th. Would you wear any of these shades?
