All about Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox’s matching nail art: ‘It’s their thing’

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox nailed their looks on Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards 2021 red carpet.

The PDA-happy couple coordinated in skin-baring black formalwear — a strappy, sexy Mugler dress for Fox, an oversize Balmain suit with an unbuttoned shirt for MGK — and even rocked coordinating black-and-white manicures for the occasion.

“They like to match,” Nails of LA founder Brittney Boyce told Page Six Style.

“But for this type of look, we really wanted to make sure that they weren’t identical looks. So we wanted something a little bit more edgier for MGK, a little bit more manly and fun.”

So Boyce gave the “Bloody Valentine” rocker, 31, a trippy take on a checkerboard pattern, and went with “two-tone double French” tips for Fox, 35, with the same colors and curves.

This wasn’t the first time the “twin flames” opted for complementary nail art by Boyce, however. When they made their red carpet debut as a couple at last year’s American Music Awards, their manicures both featured colorful semicircles — MGK’s coral, Fox’s hot pink — bisected by thin black lines.

“He’s one of my favorite clients,” Boyce said of Kelly, who will launch his own unisex nail polish line this fall. “Because no matter what, I’ll always get good nail shots with him, because he loves showing them off so much. With the girls I’m like, ‘Come on, show your nails.’ But he does such a great job with making them an actual accessory.”

The manicure master added that MGK truly keeps her on her toes — or fingertips, rather.

“I get a lot of people that just ask me, ‘What’s in?’ and then I tell them and then we do it. But for him, I really have to think ahead, because he is so artistic and he has so many great ideas,” she explained.

“It’s just really nice to have [someone] that pushes me beyond, that I can be more edgy and creative with.”

And while it’s certainly possible that Fox and Kelly will inspire other couples to give coordinating nail art a try — especially since more men are embracing manis these days — Boyce told us she hopes it “stays their thing for a while.”

“I mean, part of me would be like, ‘Oh, it’s so cool if it does become a trend.’ But the other part of me is like, ‘I just want it to stay theirs,'” she said.
