I finally got around to attempting the popular owl mani.  I first saw this mani done by Cristina at Let Them Have Polish.  I have seen other versions on other blogs but I decided to recreate the colorfull owls that Cristina did.  I am all about color right now, especially spring colors. 

In my excitement of completing this design I forgot to take the step by step pictures.  SORRY!!  This is actually a pretty easy design to recreate if you are looking for a fun mani. 

Polishes...lots of polishes!
