23 Kerry Washington Mani-Grams That Will Inspire Your Next Paint Job

If we could go on a mani/pedi date with any celeb, it would undoubtedly be Kerry Washington. The first obvious reason would be her polish expertise. Earlier this month, the Emmy-nominated actress released a capsule collection with OPI and each color is more "scandalous" than the last. Beyond her beauty business ventures, Kerry is also known for taking picture-perfect mani-grams. If you're looking for color or design inspo, these handsy Instagram moments are a must-see.
