On Desna’s working station there are nail polishes by China Glaze, Orly and Essie.
The lipstick Desna (Niecy Nash) wears in the opening scene of the episode is by MAC.
Zlata (Franka Potente) wants to get a manicure from Desna (Niecy Nash) and she brings her own nail polish, aptly called Russian Navy. This deep indigo shade is a classic by OPI.
Desna (Niecy Nash), Polly (Carrie Preston) and Brenda (Lusia Strus) are discussing the making of a commercial for Dr. Ken’s pain clinic. A display of Orly Velvet Dream collection (released in fall 2017) can be seen behind them.
While Brenda is leaving the nail salon, more Orly nail polishes can be seen on one of the working stations. I think the shades are Scenic Route (purple neon), Vintage (green mint) and Freestyle (coral).
The plot of this tv show takes a possible darker turn when Riva’s sons – Russian gangsters – are accused of being Roller’s killers. Riva (Andrea Sooch) has been Desna’s client for a while, so she tries to sort things out. How? By getting a manicure!
The nail polish that catches her attention and that is the title of the episode is Teatro, from Giorgio Armani High Shine nail lacquer collection.
A bottle of Salvador Dalì parfum de toilette can be seen on Desna’s dresser. Now this is an unusual choice: this perfume, created in 1985 by Alberto Morillas, is a classic 1980s scent, not the first perfume that comes to my mind when I think of a flamboyant character like Desna. According to Fragrantica, it’s “very intensive and unusual thanks to the spicy-grassy top notes contrasting with the opulent floral perfume heart:” it sounds alluring, right?
The bottle, reproducing a woman’s mouth and nose (the cap), was designed by the Spanish artist.
On her dresser there’s also a bottle of Vaseline Cocoa Radiant body lotion.
Thanks to Jennifer for the lotion id.
