31 Day Challenge - Purple + Downton Abbey Nails

Hi all, I am on day 6 of the 31 Day Challenge, and still going strong! Check out my wonderful pals who are also participating, Raine and Jonochi at Lacquer Lily and Just Add Polish.

Today's challenge is purple! I decided to go with a theme like I did for my blue nails for yesterday's challenge. For whatever reason, Downton Abbey came to mind. I've recently gotten really into the show, I can't get enough! I finished the first three seasons in about one week's time...I am sad to wait until the fall to see more. To fill the Downton void, here's some Downton Abbey themed nail art!


The pattern nails were done using two coats of Color Club Pucci-licious with Butter London Marrow stamped on using a design from the RA-120 stamping plate. The accent nail is the Downton Abbey logo on top of two coats of Butter London Muggins. The logo is a homemade decal like the one I used for yesterday's nails, and I filled in the bottom half of the nail with black using a Stripe Rite Nail Art Striper.

In case you were wondering what the bright and dark purple design had to do with Downton Abbey, I used the pattern at the top of the DVD box art cover as inspiration.

Do you see it? Unfortunately I didn't have the right shades of purple for this, but I made do with what I had. I'll be taking a break from the 31 Day Challenge tomorrow to post my much requested Legend of Zelda nail art tutorial! Until then, thanks for reading!


  1. Ermagerrd :p I lovelovelove these! I adored Downton Abbey (did you see the Christmas special? so much unnecessary sadness).

    Can't wait to see how you do your homemade decals they're fabulous! x

    1. Thank you! And yeah I saw the Christmas special. :( It was such a letdown. Especially compared to the season 2 Christmas special where everything just ended all happy and good...

    2. I know! Such a shitty note to end on wheras last time we had all the mary/matthew happiness *sigh* So much sadness in the last series :(

    3. I ALMOST went on Downton Abbey strike after I saw it. But I know I won't be able to stay away. :P
