Machine Gun Kelly has dazzling numbers.
The “Emo Girl” rocker walked the red carpet at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday with a blinding, bling-out manicure worth $30,000 while snuggling up to love interest Megan Fox.
Nails of LA founder Brittney Boyce collaborated with Jillian Sassone of Marrow Fine Jewelry on the sparkling look, which features 880 diamonds weighing a total of 11.4 carats.
“The nail set perfectly embodies MGK’s glam rock style,” Boyce told Page Six Style, adding, “The set took over 10 hours to make. They were created off-site and applied before he does not walk the red carpet.
The artist calls the headline couple ‘from afar [her] favorite customers.
“We get to do the coolest things together and with every major nail look, we always get bigger next time,” she says.
MGK, 32, wore an all-black Dolce & Gabbana look consisting of an equally dazzling turtleneck and cropped suit silhouetted with sharp silver spikes.
Fox, 35, coordinated with her fiancé in a black off-the-shoulder dress by David Koma with a high-slit plunging neckline and long sleeves adorned with crystal flower appliqués.

Boyce has created a number of matching manicures for the couple over the past two years, including their chained tips at MGK’s UN/DN LAQR launch in December 2021 and their razor-sharp claws at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
“They like to match,” Boyce told Page Six Style last year, calling MGK “one of my favorite clients…Because no matter what, I’ll always get great nail shots with him, because he likes to show them so much. With the girls, I tell them: ‘Come on, show your nails.’ But it does such a good job of making it a real accessory.
The artist added, “I mean, part of me would be like, ‘Oh, that’s so cool if [couple’s nail art] becomes a trend. But the other part of me is like, ‘I just want it to stay theirs.'”
Fans of Kelly’s manicure will soon be able to grab a piece of her style: after the show, gemstones from the star’s nails will be recycled into a collection of limited-edition rings, which will be sold on the website of Marrow, with 100% of profits going to charity. .
MGK is nominated for Top Rock Artist at this year’s Billboard Music Awards and is also set to perform on the telecast.
