With its magnificent mix of the historical and the cosmopolitan – Washington, D.C. is one of the world’s most compelling cities. It’s also the inspiration for OPI’s fall/winter lacquer collection.
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. Wearing bold shades like these is empowering and uplifting, not to mention a perfect way to show some election year spirit!” she added.
The Washington DC palette delivers a dramatic, sophisticated spin on classic fall hues. From the authoritative red of Madam President to the treasury-worthy deep olive of Suzi – The First Lady of Nails, OPI boldly casts its ballot for color pure and powerful. Fashion-forward lush green Stay Off the Lawn!! adds a jolt of power to fall looks, while (air) traffic-stopping yellow Never a Dulles Moment curries favor with movers and shakers. As a bonus, three limited-edition colors bear Kerry Washington’s stylish imprimatur.
