Kerry Washington’s latest project has her headed back to the White House! The ‘Scandal’ actress teamed up with nail polish brand OPI to create a whole line of Washington DC-inspired shades for fall, and they’re available right now. See what Kerry had to say about the collection, ahead.
Kerry Washington, 39, has created a whole line of fall nail polish colors with OPI that are Olivia Pope-approved for sure. The actress recently unveiled the 15-shade collection earlier this summer, and it’s finally available on OPI.com.
“My relationship with DC is a long one,” Kerry told HollywoodLife. “I went to college there and I worked for the real White House before I worked for the White House on TV because I’m part of Obama’s administration in the committee for the arts and humanities,” she went on to explain why the Washington DC-themed collection was the perfect match for her.
The collection includes a mix of traditional rich colors for fall (like one of Kerry’s favorite burgundy shades, “We the Female”), as well as brighter shades of peach and yellow. Kerry also shared that you can expect to see her character Olivia Pope sport some of the new polishes in season 6 of Scandal, including her favorite nude color.
“There’s a beautiful neutral for brown girls,” Kerry said of the color she wore above in her Instagram pic. “Nude when I was growing up didn’t always mean nude for me,” she says of why this is one of her favorite shades, adding “It’s named after my daughter — there’s a phrase in Washington called ‘Inside the beltway,’ so it’s called “Inside the ISABELLEtway.”
