Kerry Washington has years of experience with the mani cam at awards season, but all that hand modelling has paid off as she has landed a new gig as the creative ambassador of OPI.

The brand announced today that she will co-design a line of polishes. She said to WWD of their creative director: "Suzi's such a fierce female entrepreneur. This is going to be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to testing out new shades on the red carpet. The fun, for me, is that nail lives in the crossover space between fashion and beauty."

So what can we expect from her nail polishes? Kerry revealed that she is looking to Gwen Stefani for inspiration: She said: "I'm a big fan of Gwen Stefani's line for OPI. She has done such a great job having her collection represent her - not just with OPI, but through everything she's done. If I can do something similar, I will be very happy."

Kerry has been a creative consultant with Neutrogena for the past two years, and talked to WWD about how they are expanding their foundation range:

"It's something that was especially important to me, so that we'll be able to have a shade for every ethnicity. I want to increase access to beauty to women of all ethnicities.

"Nude looks different depending on your skin tone and that's the fashion and beauty world I want to live in, where everyone has the ability to express the beauty that reflects them. I love being able to be an influencer in the space."
