Fall is just about a month away, and what better way to prepare for the new season than with the latest nail colors.
On August 5, OPI announced to the social media world that the Scandal-inspired fall/winter collection, Washington DC, was released. The star of the television series, Kerry Washington, is this season’s creative ambassador, and OPI has come up with a total of 15 shades that represent her TV character well.
OPI’s Washington DC collection has fun, presidential-themed names like “Madam President” and “Freedom of Peach.” It also features rich colors including nudes like “Pale to the Chief” and bolds like “Never a Dulles Moment.”
The best part – these colors are all also available in gel polish.
**Note: All color descriptions are based on what they look like on nails.
