All the Details on Kerry Washington’s Nail Color Named for Her Daughter Isabelle

08/04/2016 at 04:15 PM ET

Kerry Washington has tacked on OPI Creative Ambassador to her long list of achievements.

The soon-to-be mom of two recently teamed up with the brand to collaborate on their fall/winter lacquer collection, called OPI Washington D.C. So it’s only fitting that the stylish actress, who plays Olivia Pope on the political drama Scandal, was someone whose influence OPI sought.

One person Washington herself looked to for inspiration? Her 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi, whom Washington named one of the colors for.

“There’s a phrase in D.C. where people say, ‘Inside the Beltway,’ so one of the colors is ‘Inside the ISABELLEtway,’ ” the actress, 39, tells PEOPLE. “It’s one of my favorites, actually, because it’s a beautiful nude for brown girls.

“When I was growing up, ‘nude’ didn’t always mean people that looked like me, so it’s a really beautiful neutral for darker tones, which I love,” she adds.

We Tried It: CeraVe Baby Skin Care

Who tried it: Amy Jamieson, PEOPLE.com writer

Why she did it: To banish dry skin from the entire family

Sometimes baby lotion is the only thing a busy — and scaly! — mom can get her dry hands on. And baby sunscreen, we all know it works just like the kind for grown-ups when you need coverage from the sun.

But sometimes it’s nice to have skin products made just for you.

So we were excited when we heard that CeraVe, makers of gentle and affordable skin products since 2005, launched a new line just for babies and more products for adults — because our entire family’s skincare needs can be fulfilled at the same place: the drugstore! (If parents received a dollar every time they went there, we’d all be millionaires).

Everyone always talks about how much your skin will glow during pregnancy, but what if your skin doesn’t get that memo?

I was one of those unlucky women and I can tell you, there’s nothing fun about treating acne while you’re expecting because unfortunately, there are a lot of products you can’t use.

My baby boy arrived two years ago so I’m back to being as close to blemish free as possible — thank goodness!

But since I figured there had to be others suffering my same fate, I decided to reach out to an expert to see if there is a safe and effective way to keep those unwanted zits at bay when you’re with child.

Luckily, Dr. Jeannette Graf was more than willing to share her thoughts. Check them out below.

David Boreanaz Loves Designing Colors for Wife’s All-Natural Nail Polish Collection

07/09/2013 at 04:00 PM ET

David Boreanaz plays a cocky FBI agent on his hit show, Bones, but he’s a softie when it comes to his almost 3-year-old daughter Bella and her mini beauty routine. That’s why the actor was happy to support his wife Jaime‘s latest project: Chrome Girl, an all-natural nail polish collection.

Launched in Feb. 2013, Jaime and her partner Melissa Ravo came up with the idea while polishing their little girls’ nails and realizing all the harmful ingredients that may inadvertently end up in their mouths.

So the good pals decided to make a polish that is free of all the bad stuff (formaldehyde, DBP, toluene or camphor) and safe enough for kids, but that doesn’t compromise on rich color.

It’s a good thing David was willing to help out during the creative process. “I immediately fell in love with designing the colors,” he tells PEOPLE. “And as a parent, I was immediately drawn to the safety benefits.”

And it already has celeb fans — mom and actress Jennifer Hudson, who wore the Hard to Get shade to this year’s Oscars.
