OPI is teaming with actress Kerry Washington to create the Fall/Winter collection. This set consists of twelve creme bold shades, only one of them has a subtle shimmer to it.
OPI Washington DC is the result of the number one salon brand’s collaboration with Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated actress Kerry Washington, recently named the company’s first-ever Creative Ambassador. Washington worked closely with OPI co-founder and brand ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann to develop and name the 12 permanent and 3 limited-edition shades, which are all available in both Nail Lacquer and GelColor formulas. “Kerry is a role model, style icon, nail lacquer lover and absolute natural in this new role,” 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.”
“It has been so inspiring to work with Suzi -- the first lady of nails -- on creating and naming this collection. It’s a real art and science to develop color that will appeal to women of all types and skin tones and that mirrors and complements the runway trends for the season” said Washington. “Nail color is a simple but impactful form of individual expression.
