Fair play to any guy who wears nail polish in 2021, but are you really a “non-conformist” if the brand of nail polish you choose to wear is created by Machine Gun Kelly & Megan Fox and has a multi-million dollar marketing machine behind it?
As per Dazed, MGK says the brand, titled UN/DN LAQR (don’t ask me how to pronounce that), is the ‘Willy Wonka of what fashion is to become’. It features 10 classic shades of nail polish, including a black hue called ‘Depressionist’ (lol), a red-orange shade called ’25 to Life’ (wouldn’t recommend wearing in prison tbh), and a dark green shade named ‘Mary Jane’. You know, because weed.
So yeah, I’m not sure how non-comformist this really is, especially with how lame he’s made each colour sound. Again, I’m all for people being creative and non-conforming and wearing whatever they want, but if someone came up to you rocking freshly painted MGK ’25 to life’ nails? Come on, you’d think they were a bit of a twat.
MGK told Allure:
I’m not expecting people to be nail artists, right? I want it to be accessible.
I mean, I’m hoping aliens, at some point when they reveal themselves, are fully immersed in the UN/DN stuff.
Uh, yeah mate. The aliens will definitely be wearing your nail polish when they reveal themselves. What is he even talking about?
Weirder still, MGK reckons his nail polish is the secret to overcoming social anxiety:
A lot of my music was for the introverts, for the people scared to be vulnerable. I know that a lot of people don’t have the external courage to start conversations with people. I’m like that — I’m super shy when it comes to starting conversations.
When I went and got coffee, one of the first times when I actually had my nails done, I went to the counter and the guy was like, ‘Wow, your nails are so beautiful.’ It makes you want to be open to the conversation.
You spend time taking care of yourself and paying attention to a detail and then somebody else appreciates that detail. (It’s) for sure a social connection.
I mean do I even have to make fun of this? Does MGK even understand what an introvert is? He reckons people are out there struggling to talk to one another and make human connections, and that nail polish is the answer? Apparently his ‘Depressionist’ shade will have you making friends left, right and centre. I guess we should get on board if that’s the case!
