Actress Kerry Washington is the newest celebrity to hook up with OPI nail colour, as the brand's creative ambassador. Word is that in addition to her work with Neutrogena as a celebrity spokesface, she'll be working with OPI co-founder and creative director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann to create new shades for her first collection.
The "Scandal" star names Lincoln Park After Dark, Big Apple Red and You Don’t Know Jacques as her current OPI favourites. “I’m also a big fan of Gwen Stefani’s line for OPI," she said in an interview with WWD. "She has done such a great job having her collection represent her — not just with OPI, but through everything she’s done. If I can do something similar, I will be very happy.”
According to WWD, Kerry Washington is also determined to see expanded shade ranges in makeup world. Neutrogena is adding foundation hues to their lineup, and is apparently working with Kerry to broaden their lip-colour offerings as well. “I want to increase access to beauty to women of all ethnicities,” the actress told WWD. “Nude looks different depending on your skin tone and that’s the fashion and beauty world I want to live in, where everyone has the ability to express the beauty that reflects them. I love being able to be an influencer in the space.”
