Good job on the tentacles!! I like the colours. 
If you want them brighter I can only give you some advice.

Highlight reds with orange-red colour. 

Getting blending to have a high chroma involves mixing the right pigments together, this is hard with hobby paints (which are allready made of multiple pigments). A good article to read is : http://figurementors.com/the-science-of-oil-paints-with-kyle-kolbe ; even thought it speak about oil painting, it still works for acrylics. It also gives a nice introduction to buying artist grade paints. 

One of the major things found in the article (that is usefull for mixing bright colours) is: "All paint hues contain biases to a neighboring color hue, meaning that no paint can represent a pure “primary” color like red, blue, and yellow to mix all other colors". This means that mixing a blue-purple with a red-purple will result in a bright colour, while mixing blue-green with red-orange will result in a dull colour.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
