You ever heard of the saying “Check on your strong friends?” This is one of those times.
Machine Gun Kelly Launches Genderless Nail Polish Collection
Machine Gun Kelly has launched his genderless, unisex nail line called UN/DN LAQR. In an interview with Allure, the entrepreneur shares his nail polish collection is the “Willy Wonka of what beauty is to become.” The line is inspired by Cupid, who is known as the ‘god of Love.’
“Many of the men in Greek mythology were warriors or soldiers or gods who had used their strength, and then there was Cupid, who was poetic and beautiful,” said Kelly. “I wonder what a world of Cupids [would] look like instead of just people falling into what they think we have to be as ‘men. Strength comes in how you honor your word, not what you literally can do with your hands. That’s an art.”
The musician collaborated with Laguna Beach brand incubator Unlisted, and he did not choose shades due to popularity or trends but based on the colors ‘that are loved’ regardless of the season.
There’s a mix of neutrals, pastels, and bold lacquers, like Writer’s Block, a milky gray, 25 to Life, and Mary Jane, a deep hunter green. A bright orange polish was named by his girlfriend, Megan Fox.

Machine Gun Kelly Reveals He’s ‘Not Feeling Okay’
While on a press run to promote his new business endeavor, the 31-year-old stopped by ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ and the singer got candid with the Golden Globe recipient about ‘not feeling okay.’ During the segment, Kelly is painting Barrymore’s nails and started to open up to the 46-year-old actress about feeling unwell in the industry – having to provide and do things for other people while still maintaining a presence to appease his fans.
The ‘Tickets To My Downfall’ artist continued, sharing how he is ‘all smiles’ when receiving awards and accolades for his work and achievements – then secretly suffering behind the scenes dealing with issues in his personal life not wanting to fake the smiles any longer.
While the Billboard Music Award recipient is dealing with these problems privately, his fear is he doesn’t want to seem ‘ungrateful.’ In an effort to comfort the rock star, Barrymore opened up to him as well.
