In recognition of International Women’s Day, actress Kerry Washington teamed up with nail brand OPI to show off her latest manicure.
The actress took to Instagram and shared a video featuring herself wearing her OPI nail polish of choice, a bold burgundy-red.
“If fierce was a color, it would be OPI’s We The Female shade,” Washington captioned the post, referring to the shiny garnet polish she co-created in collaboration with the brand back in 2016 as part of its Washington, D.C. collection. “I am so proud that it’s a color that continues to inspire.”
In a press release out last week, OPI announced that Washington will take on the role of brand ambassador this year for the iconic nail brand’s 40th anniversary. Washington served as OPI’s first-ever creative ambassador in 2016, so it seems only fitting that the actress should partner with the company once again.
“I think so much of women’s empowerment comes from partnership,” Washington told People magazine in a recent interview. “I always want to partner with companies that don’t make women feel bad about ourselves and that don’t make it feel like the standards which we measure ourselves, that excellence is unattainable.”
