She'll handle your nails, too.

Kerry Washington is getting her hands dirty as the new creative ambassador of OPI, WWD reports. Like Gwen Stefani before her, the Scandal star will co-design a collection of nail polish with OPI founder Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. A release date has not yet been revealed. 

"This is going to be a lot of fun," the style star told the trade. "I’m looking forward to testing out new colors on the red carpet. The fun, for me, is that nail lives in the crossover space between fashion and beauty. I love to play with nail color on the red carpet and explore new shades."

Based on a few of her current OPI shades — Big Apple Red (a vibrant red shade), Lincoln Park After Dark (a deep burgundy), and You Don't Know Jaques (a taupe) — we imagine that her new collection will be a perfect pair for Olivia Pope's neutral-heavy wardrobe, too. Perhaps a merlot-inspired red for the crime-solving wino? 

Though this is the 38-year-old's first OPI collab, it's not her first time at the beauty rodeo. Washington has been a creative consultant for Neutrogena since 2013.
