31DC2013 Day 29 Inspired By The Supernatural: Kraken Nails

Good morning all!  The challenge is coming to a close!  This is the home inning stretch.  Today's theme is Inspired by The Supernatural.  As much as I wanted to put Dean and Sam Winchester's faces on my nails, I'm just not that talented.  I had to think of something else.  Recently, WAH Nails posted some kraken nail art on their Instagram, and I immediately knew that was the perfect choice for today!

Krakens are giant sea monsters of the deep sea.  Their myth is Norse, and they originate off the coats of Norway and Greenland.  They have these giant tentacles that grab the unlucky boat.  I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I then went to do the design in OPI Black Onyx, later I filled in with OPI Stranger Tides (fitting?).  I love that the design almost looks sketched.  I tried to do the kraken head on my thumb, however, it didn't come out too good.  O well, I love the rest of my nails and that matters!   I feel like I've seen krakens everywhere lately, I wonder if they'll be the new scary creature of upcomin movies and TV?

What do you guys think of these Kraken nails?
