In this episode we’re brought back to 1983, when Elektra (Dominique Jackson) is trying hard to achieve her goals and to help her three daughters (Blanca, Candy and Lulu). They share a dingy flat, but this doesn’t let Elektra down: it probably gives her a reason to fight and improve her condition.
In the early 1980s she wears White Linen by Estee Lauder, a floral aldehydic fragrance created by Sophia Grojsman and launched in 1978.
In 1983 this was the advert of the perfume: model Karen Graham, portrayed by Victor Skrebneski, was wearing a chic white outfit with blue details and looked relaxed in an elegant mansion. The imagery conjured here is so different from the world of Elektra, but it represents a goal to reach – money, luxury, comfort.
On her dressing table there’s also an orange OPI nail polish.
Lemar Khan (Jason A. Rodriguez), a former member of the House of Abundance, Ferocity, Evangelista and Wintour, is now the father of the House of Khan and he’s ready to challenge his former mother, Elekra Evangelista.
On his dressing table we can see a bottle of Thayers rose petal and witch hazel alcohol-free toner and a bright red nail polish by Sally Hansen.
There’s also a pump bottle of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula moisturizing hand wash.
I love intermission shots in this TV show! They always feature fantastic manicures, shiny accessories and tons of nail polishes. This time, the pedicure it presents is a bit unusual: 1-dollar bills are used as toe spacers 😉 The nail polish used here is RK by Kiss HDnail polish in a fire red shade.
