Ever since Machine Gun Kelly switched from rap to pop punk in 2020 with his project Tickets to My Downfall, he’s experienced a recent career renaissance. To go along with the new rocker aesthetic, MGK’s taken to painting his nails to mimic other popular rock stars of the past, with bright colors like neon pink and blue. He’s added flare to the designs using smiley faces and eyes. One of his most extravagant looks came back in May when he attended the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a set of ultra long, jagged nails adorned with mismatched designs like serrated edges and silver spikes. Nail art has also provided a bonding opportunity for the musician and his girlfriend Megan Fox. The couple’s sported matching nail art in the past that includes bloody hearts and knives, as well as more simplistic designs like black lines, which the couple wore on the American Music Awards red carpet back in November 2020. The merch for the aforementioned album even included a three-pack of nail polishes in colors like Punk Pink, Black Like My Heart, and a glittery silver option titled Paparazzi. It appears that he is taking things a step further by launching his own unisex line in collaboration with Unlisted Brand Lab, UN/DN, in the coming months as well.—Michael DeStefano
