What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Whooo (sorry) says owls have to be creepy? Not this polisher. For this look, start by painting nails a rich purple shade. Using nail art brushes, create an outline of the owl's body and fill in with black polish. White, orange, and blue accents bring it all to life.
