MGK loves a good nail art moment. From his Edward Scissorhands-like acrylics for last year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards to his chain-linked coordinated manis with fiancé Megan Fox for the launch of his nail polish line, UN/DN LAQR, his manicures are always part nail art, part performance. On Sunday, May 15 Machine Gun Kelly walked the red carpet at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards sporting his most extravagant nail look yet, which included $30,000 worth of diamonds. The final look is not only extremely cool, but is also part of an effort between MGK and jewelry brand Marrow Fine to raise money for charity.

“Creating MGKs diamond nails was a natural progression of where nail art and jewelry intersect. They perfectly embody MGK’s style — I can’t imagine anyone else wearing this set,” says Jillian Sassone, founder and creative director of Marrow Fine.
“We’ll soak the diamonds off of the nails after the show and create 10 pieces for charity. They'll be glam rock meets everyday fine jewelry — a mix of diamond-heavy men’s and women’s signets and cigar bands,” says Sassone.
The new rings will be handmade and take 6-8 weeks to complete. One-hundred percent of the proceeds will go to a Cleveland-based charity (MGK’s hometown) and will be available for purchase on marrowfine.com.
