Digital Dozen does Book Genres - Children's: Slinky Malinky

Another Digital Dozen week has sneaked up me and I'm not prepared.  I have only one mani done so far, so it looks like I will be doing nightly designs this week to stay on top of it.

This month's theme is Book Genres.  Who is it that is coming up with these, cause I seriously doubt I voted for this as a theme. Let me just say that I'm not a big book reader.  Sure I enjoy reading, but I just don't get time for it. I can't even remember the last book that I actually read. Not counting kids books of course, cause I sure get to read plenty of them to the kids.  Which leads me to my first genre choice. Children's.

I chose to represent one of my favourite children's books, or series of books, Slinky Malinky by Lynley Dodd.  Slinky Malinky is a family favourite actually, so much so that my daughter is dressing as Slinky Malinky at the end of the month for Australian book week dress up day.

Slinky Malinky was blacker than black, a stalking and lurking adventurous cat. He had bright yellow eyes, a warbling wail and a kink at the end of his very long tail.

To create this design I used these perfect cat ear shaped nail vinyl french tips I received from MilvArt.  The vinyls meant that I was able to get the perfect ear shape design on every finger, which is not something I could have created freehand. They stick cleanly to my nail to create sharp lines, but weren't too sticky to pull up my barely dry base colour.

Nail vinyls provided for review.


  1. This is so stinkin' cute! I love the cats.

  2. I've never heard of this book, I'm going to have to check it out. Your cat tips are too cute!
