January is usually the time for transformations, and Autumn is usually that back to school mindset where you become a serious grown up again after the summer playtime.  However, thanks to some clever nail inventions and clothing collection launches, we’re going to show you how you can still indulge your inner stylista with a series of prints, textures and weird places to put fabrics…
