Kerry Washington’s name is associated with DC for several reasons, the most obvious being her role as White House savior Olivia Pope on the hit ABC series Scandal. The Emmy nominated Actress also attended DC’s George Washington University for college. Additionally, Washington was a campaign surrogate during both of President Obama’s runs. “I worked for the real White House before I worked for the fake one,” she says.
So when she was approached by Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, cofounder and brand ambassador for OPI nail products, it made sense to collaborate on a D.C.-focused collection. “It was Suzi’s idea,” Washington says. “I’ve been a fan of hers from afar for a long time, and I thought the idea was really fun.” It also marks a milestone for the brand. The line, named Washington D.C. (because, of course), is the first time OPI has collaborated with an actress — all of its previous collabs have been with musicians.
Together, Washington and Weiss-Fischmann created 15 shades with adorable names. Look out for colors like Kerry Blossom, Squeaker of the House, and Freedom of Peach.
