Birchbox Breakdown

Clipping or filing your nails in public is generally a no-no in our book, but with a tool this cute, we might just let it slide. Toss this mini-file in your bag to keep nails smooth and snag-free, no matter where your day takes you. Even if that means filing your nails on the subway.

How it Works

This thick emery board has a gritty side to shape nails and file down any breaks or snags, plus a smoother face to gently finish nail edges. Our favorite part? It comes in a little plastic case so the file won’t damage your sunglasses, jewelry, or any of the other delicate items in your purse.

How to Use

File nails from one side to the other in smooth, arching motions. Avoid sawing back and forth—this rough action weakens tips and leads to two nail nightmares: breakage and splitting.

I love these little files! Great for carrying in your purse in the event you break a nail while out.

Great File
Purchased

I keep this in my purse and love it. It was a non-intended purchase, but am happy I bought it. Thanks, Birchbox!

Got this nail file in a birch box a while back and just packed it away in my vacation bag so my manicure can stay beautiful while on vacation!

Too small

I could see using this as a travel item, but not as an everyday use item. It would be a great option for beach bags or vacations.

I LOVE Tweezerman products. These files are perfect to stash anywhere you may need an extra file. I also love to gift them. The patterns are fun too!

Convenient but...

I got these files as a sample in one of my boxes. I LOVE the convenience. The matchbox size and packaging is adorable and so handy to just throw in my bag.
The quality of these tiny files left something to be desired. They are definitely a one-time use and honestly were not very effective. They're very harsh.
I would most likely not buy the full-size product (though it may be more durable) because the convenience in size is what really sells this product for me.
Make the matchbox a product, not just a sample, and you'd have a buyer! :)

Ok for travel

I wouldn't use this nail file on a regular basis, something I'd carry in my purse instead for emergencies. The size of each nail file in the sample is only enough for 1 use.

Cute but not great

They are cute to have and carry around with you. It is a last-resort sort of nail file, though. Barely had any texture to actually file away the hang nail or the nails, I am a biter and always try to stop myself by filing them back.

Ouch! (says my nail)
Purchased

This file was terrible on my natural nails. Extremely rough on both sides. If you have artificial nails maybe this file is okay but it made my natural nails jagged and rough.

Great file!
Purchased

I love this nail file. I have had it for a few months now and keep it in my bag at all times. I love the travel case it comes in. It is amazing for shaping too! My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it seems to wear pretty quickly.
