Tweezerman Filemate

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.

Too Small!
Sampled

These are TINY! I see the appeal of easily stashing these in a purse, but I could barely use it due to the teeny tiny size. I'll stick to my full-size nail file. It doesn't take up that much space.

Didn't work for me!
Sampled

I was SO excited to try these adorable nail files with a cute and fun design but I was quickly disappointed... The nail file wasn't coarse enough to file and shape my nails. My nails are relatively short and soft for that matter and it took 3 different nail files from my sample package to get through my 10 fingernails. I read the other reviews and now am beginning to think maybe my sample was defective... the sides felt coarse and fine but I couldn't successfully get a good use out of them... I'm probably going to stick to my plain jane brown emory boards... Thanks for the sample though!

Falls short

I do not care for this type of nail file - I like files with a more length and a softer texture. I can see the benefit for traveling but this will not be something I purchase.

Not a good product
Sampled

I tried these files and did not like them, they did not seem to be gritty enough and it kind of seemed like they were just running over my nails instead of filing them.

nail files?

What can you say about nail files other than I wish I didn't get them in my box.

They're nail files, they're compact. If you use nail files a lot you'd probably like it because it'll fit in a purse. Or just pull one tiny file out of the package and it'd fit in a wallet.

Cute package but it ended there
Sampled

I had high hopes for this little gem - it's such cute packaging but sadly didn't work well. I wish i would have included it in a little gift bag and not opened it. The files just didn't - file. The buffer was a nice bonus on this little package, but in terms of actually filing and shaping nails, I would not purchase this product. They only started working when I really put some muscle into it, which caused them to start breaking apart. I had to go through 2 files to shape 2 nails. I don't think it would be worth buying..even though the size and package is great.

The small purse size box is cute and I love the design on the emery boards.

Ineffective
Sampled

I really liked the idea of these small files, as I travel a lot and don't like to schlepp my regular size nail file around. Also, the design is cute and the sample size was generous.
I also really like Tweezermann tweezers and will never use any other tweezer to plug my eyebrows. So what could be better than a nail file by this great company? Well, I think they either have to improve the file (a lot) or stick with tweezers because the files did not do anything to file my nails.

Did not break or bend. Decent. Just not something I would like to see again as a sample

A silly little sample
Sampled

Emory boards are a dime a dozen and all just as effective. What a silly sample to include, that is more of a "giveaway" to promote their tweezers, which is an excellent product. But to use that as a sample in Birchbox, what a disappointment.
