Sunday Stamping: Tiger Stripes over Sally Hansen Sun Kissed Orange

This is the first time I've taken part in Adventures in Stamping's Sunday challenge, which this week was to stamp over an orange base. I only have one orange polish in my entire collection, which is Sally Hansen's Sun Kissed Hard as Nails Xtremewear. I was going through my Bundle Monster plates and came across tiger stripes, so I thought that would be perfect over an orange base (although perhaps not particularly original!) It's from BM16 (yet again!)... I used Konad Special Black polish for stamping and topped it all with Butter London PD Quick (I am never using Seche Vite again).

I have to admit that I had to repaint the orange base about 4 times on my left hand because I kept screwing up the stamping. The Sally Hansen polish is quite thick and dries pretty slowly - this was three coats to get proper popping opacity... which is why it has taken me most of the afternoon to get it finished! (Thanks to Grey's Anatomy I was kept entertained).
