LynBDesigns Defender of the Downtrodden

I'm still alive! Not surprisingly, it's even bigger of a challenge to post regular swatches now that I'm back to working full time and taking care of a newborn, but I'll still be posting when I can. 🙂 Here's LynBDesigns Defender of the Downtrodden from the Meet Me at the Abbey collection, three coats, topped with Essie Good...
