I've Got 99...

Before I start this post,just wanna say, I have been real busy with my job,and on top of that,trying to get my nails back in shape again. It seems it's been two steps forward,and one step back,with my poor little digits. I just feel too ashamed to even post any nail swatches.My nails are so far from perfect. I get so self-conscious of them,especially when there are so many other nail bloggers who's nails are in such perfect condition,I get really discouraged,and don't want anyone to see mine. So until mine are back in shape, and that may take awhile, I am reserving my right to keep them hidden :-)

Anyway, I wanted to do a post about something fun I saw on Jenna's blog I'm Still Thinking... I know it was a couple months ago,and I didn't have the time then to do it.The general idea is to go through the list,and enter in bold lettering which of the 99 things you've actually done.  So now on to the fun part!
