NOTD: Mosaic Gaudi Inspired

I wanted to show you a look that I recently made to join a contest. The contest was about a city that inspired you as a person. Can you already guess which city?!

So the city I love is definitely Barcelona. It's a city where I've been to, many times. Every time I'm in Barcelona I'll try to visit some of it's attractions. I've already been to and have seen; La Sagrada Familia, Montejuïc, Camp Nou, Statue of Napoleon, Casa Milà and Parc Güell. Don't know what I'm talking about? Use google. Haha. It's just too much to talk about.

So you probably still don't know why I made these mosaic nails. Well, in Barcelona you have a parc called Parc Güell. This park was created by Antoni Gaudi, a famous architect, and Eusebi  Güell. Together they made a park, with different architecture inspired by nature, on a huge vacant lot in Barcelona. One of Gaudi's work was a bench. A serpentine bench made out of hundred different, but broken, tiles.
So this all is what this nail of the day is inspired by. Or as you can say, just some mosaic nail art.
