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.

Only meh...
Purchased

Only purchased this as a "throw in" item to reach a certain dollar amount and it is over priced for the nail file. It is a very fine file and seems like it would be useless after a couple of times using it. Cute, but not worth it.

Cheap, falls apart
Sampled

Worse nail file I have every used. It's made of paper. Don't waste your money, falls apart after first use.

Threw away after one use...
Purchased

This was a very poor quality nail file. It left my nails very rough. It also started peeling apart and bent after one use. I threw it away. I have never had a nail file do that before. Very disappointed.

Cheap and Flimsy
Purchased

I used this emery board a grand total of TWO times before the textured part started peeling away from the foam inside of the board, rendering it useless.

Cheaply made, ruined after first use
Purchased

I was excited when i ordered this emery board because how pretty the floral pattern looks. But please be aware that this pretty pattern is printed on a piece of paper-like emery board. The sand paper actually peels off of the spongy middle piece. Not only that, when i first used it, i scratched off the rough sandy part of the paper exposing the white paper underneath. I wish i could post picture because i don't explain this very well. So all i have left now after first use is half peeled emery board with scratched parts that are not useful anymore because it loses the sandy part of it.

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.

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.
