So sweet! Kerry Washington plays the one and only political fixer Olivia Pope on Scandal, so it’s fitting that her first OPI nail polish collection is D.C.-themed. What’s surprising is that the famously private actress chose to name one of the polishes after her 21-month-old daughter, Isabelle.
The name in question: Inside the IsabelletWay, which she gave to a crème caramel shade.
“I thought long and hard about having my daughter involved, but once I came up with the name, I couldn’t get it out of my head,” Washington, who serves as OPI’s first creative ambassador, told WWD.
The 15-shade collection, which will sell for $10 a bottle and hits stores on August 4, also includes We the Female (a garnet shade), Madam President (a bright red), “Liv” in the Gray (a dark gray and a nod to Washington’s beloved character) and Kerry Blossom (a rich plum).
The Django Unchained actress also made sure to include nudes — a wide range of them. “For me, growing up, when people were saying ‘nude,’ they weren’t talking about my naked skin tone,” she said. “I made sure that in my collection, we had nudes that also represent me.” There’s a light nude called Pale to the Chief, a copper named Yank My Doodle and a chocolate titled Speaker of the House.
