Around the World Challenge: Barcelona

I can't believe it's already week 6 of the Around the World Challenge!! 9 left to go. Today we travel to the beautiful city of Barcelona... a destination that is most definitely on my to-travel list.


For this manicure I was inspired by the beautiful stone walls around the city (EDIT: I was corrected by one of my lovely readers.. this is actually a bench in Park Güell... but "tile mosaics were one of Gaudi's trademarks, so they are really found in many places in Barça") 

The artwork in Barcelona is one of the many reasons I would love to visit. You can see the google image below that inspired my design...




I used Finger Paints Paper Mache as my base and then blobbed on the following colors:
Barry M Cyan Blue, Cobalt Blue, & Blueberry Icecream, Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter, China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le & First Mate, and American Apparel Malibu Green & Office.
