Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board

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.

Nail File... really?
Purchased

I'm not sure why this file is getting so much praise... probably because it's cute (which I agree) but this file does nothing for me. I have pretty think nails so maybe thats my issue but when I use this file it does not work well filing down my nails. The abrasive part seems to vanish after two pulls back and forth and eventually causes me to 'file' my nails with the background paper- which does nothing! I would not buy this product again and do not recommend buying unless you just want compliments on how cute your nail file looks.

Cute!

Cute emery board that's definitely not embarrassing to use in public; I've already gotten a couple compliments on it! It would be nice if one side was a lot rougher than the other, but it's good enough.

Great big file

Love this pretty file and its case. Nothing worse than scraping your skin against a file while digging through your bag.

Wonderful.

I used every bit of this file I could. I paint my nails frequently due to breakage and this cutie helped make it a smoother task.

Good product

The Emory board I recieved in my birch box was so cute and a great size. I've used it regularly for almost a year and it still has plenty of use in it. It doesn't leave my nails ragged like other nail files tend to. Creates nice smooth nails!

Does The Job & Very Cute!
SampledPurchased

This does the job and is very pretty to look at! Perfect to carry along in my purse. Seems quite durable, doesn't bend or peel apart like some of the more cheaper files.

Quality nail file

I liked this product but the size, although handy, is somewhat of a downside. I found it harder to use than a regular size file but the pattern is super cute and is great to carry around in your purse/for travel uses.

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. :(
