Kerry Washington joins OPI as creative ambassador

Kerry Washington is the new creative ambassador of OPI.

The 'Scandal' star - who is also a creative consultant with Neutrogena - will co-design a new line for the nail brand with creative director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann.

She told WWD: "Suzi's such a fierce female entrepreneur. This is going to be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to testing out new shades on the red carpet. The fun, for me, is that nail lives in the crossover space between fashion and beauty."

And Kerry, 38, revealed she is looking to another celebrity - No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani - for inspiration.

She said: "I'm a big fan of Gwen Stefani's line for OPI. 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."

Kerry also revealed that she is working with Neutrogena to ensure that their foundations are suitable for everyone.

She explained: "It's something that was especially important to me, so that we'll be able to have a shade for every ethnicity. I want to increase access to beauty to women of all ethnicities. 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."
