The Kissy Kracken - Freehand Octopus Nail Art

Allo polish Pals!

How're ya all doing today? I hope this week has been going well for you?

I've found myself in somewhat of a slump. I'm not sure if its the dull repetitive weather, being out of work or just the same continuous pattern. I'm normally a positive person but I'm just finding it hard to get my oompf at the moment. I'm not unhappy but its like my motivation is at a low. Is that what they mean by January blues? I hope you guys don't have that feeling!

Today's nail art is in fitting with the theme over at Tiny Canvas, the current prompt for the weekly challenge is aquatic life. I thought about doing some small detailed exotic fish but I felt like going for someone a little more fun.


 “First... comes the kiiiissy kissy, then comes the eatings!!”

 



 
My kraken/octopuses face is inspired by the kissy emoji because I thought it would look so silly on him, something a little more comical.

I'm gonna be reeeeeaally honest and say I'm really unimpressed with this design. I guess the idea didn't come to mind until I was sat painting it, had I of planned this out better I probably would have used different colours, made the sky much more moody (sky doesn't stand out enough in my opinion)

But still, I decided to share it to see what you guys think. I can't like what I do 100% of the time but I always learn from it.

What do you guys think of my kissy kraken? Would you be scared of him?
Thank you for visiting, I'll catch you again on Friday for an exclusive sneak peak of a brand new collection! Have an awesome day!




Love,
Ithi

  1. I agree the sky doesn't look moody enough to match the lightning but still and awesome design. I like how the octopus spans across the nails.

  3. I think it an adorable design, but not the best of what I've seen from you. The sky doesn't stand out as well as it could. I love the lightning though. Seeing a design that incorporated that more would be awesome.

  10. I really like the face you've given the octopus, it's really nice. I can see what you say by the moody sky, indeed it would make more sense, with the lightning on the last night. However, it's still impressive!
