Birchbox

Birchbox Breakdown

We generally frown upon PDG (public displays of grooming) but this floral-patterned mini-file is so charming, we’re tempted to make an exception. Inspired by Madewell’s new spring collection, which features sun-ready prints and patterns like this one, the emery board is as practical as it is pretty. The double-sided nail care essential is perfect for daily maintenance and as a quick fix for snags or breaks.

How it Works

This sturdy manicure savior has a rough side for shaping and filing down breaks or snags, plus a smoother face to gently finish nail edges.

How to Use

File in short, quick strokes, starting from the sides and working toward the center of the nail. Avoid sawing back and forth, which can weaken tips and lead to two nail nightmares: breakage and splitting.

Already falling apart
Purchased

This emery board is so cute, but it seems cheap and not up to the standard I expect from birchbox. I've had mine three weeks, kept it in its protective case, and the emery part is already lifting and it's falling apart. :(

Terrible...one use!
Sampled

Cute design, but I got one use out of it and had to throw it away after trying to use it a second time...not enough bite left on the Emory board. Pretty, but not effective.

Pretty!

Very fashionable, and the print didn't fade too badly after each use.

Nice nail file
Purchased

I love the floral pattern on this nail file, other than that it is your basic nail file. Als0, the description says "mini", but this is a full size file.

Always have it in my purse. It's gentle on my nails and don't take too much off the length

Cuteness and great for on the go!

I keep this file in my purse. I am very low maintenance when it comes to my nails but this does the trick when I have a break or a hang nail that is bugging me. It is a very glam for a nail file!

Cute emery board
Purchased

I bought this as part of a gift for my cousin for her birthday.
I loved the cute floral pattern and thought it would be a cute addition to the limited edition box I sent her.

Okay Product.

This emery board is large which is nice and you can never have too many emery boards but I would not repurchase this for $5. Much too expensive just for an emery board.
