  2. The area you say you struggle with (how and where to highlight) is something I also struggled with, and still do. I also found that I’d get a mini looking great with just a base coat and wash, and then make it look worse at the highlight stage.

  10. Magnificent! Now that's a pro job right there.
  11. Heathens! I still have it on almost everything.
  12. Oh, I'm not putting much into it at all, I was just puzzled by the spike. And I agree, the Instagram community is a delight, I get so many lovely messages and comments, and it makes me want to do the same.
