Calling all Scandal fans: If you’re as obsessed with Olivia Pope’s (we mean Kerry Washington’s) beauty looks as we are, you’ll be thrilled to hear Washington's latest beauty collaboration has her crafting your future manicure. The stunning actress and Neutrogena model has joined forces with nail megabrand OPI as its new creative ambassador and will collaborate on a line of nail polish to be released in 2016.
Washington told wwd.com, “This is going to be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to testing out new colours 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 colour on the red carpet and explore new shades.”
While few other details have surfaced, Washington’s recently been spotted wearing a palette heavy in metallics and sparkle for the festive period, like OPI Drive A Supernova (£13) and OPI Is This Star Taken (£13), but has said her fave shades are Lincoln Park After Dark (£13), a deep purple-black and You Don't Know Jacques! (£13), a taupe. Sure, it’s holiday season and a free pass to get wild with the nails, but we can’t help but wonder if her recent nail decisions are any indication of what’s to come from her future as a designer. Either way, fingers crossed polish names go heavy on the Scandal references.
What do you think Kerry Washington's polishes will look like? Let the guessing begin in the comments!
