Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Kerry Washington will be OPI's first-ever Creative Ambassador.

Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI co-founder and brand ambassador, first approached Washington about collaborating with the brand last spring, to which Washington excitedly agreed to. 

“One of my favorite shows is ‘Scandal’,” says Weiss-Fischmann, “I noticed that the show was on the tip of everyone’s tongue from the boardroom to the water cooler and Kerry had unquestionably become a role model for women everywhere. She truly empowers women of all ages… she is bold, fashionable and loves nail lacquer.”

Weiss-Fischmann worked with Washington for several months in order to develop the new role. As Creative Ambassador, Washington will work with Weiss-Fischmann on developing nail lacquer shade names, co-curate shades and work as a consultant on various creative aspects at OPI. 

“I am a huge fan of OPI and was ecstatic when Suzi approached me to partner with the brand,” Washington says. “I'm so inspired by Suzi and what she has built with the OPI brand. OPI's broad spectrum of fashionable colors and iconic names have become an industry standard. I'm thrilled to work with Suzi on developing gorgeous new shades and exciting new names.”
