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.

Cute Floral Pattern, but completely useless.
Sampled

This product is so cute and drew me in with its adorable floral pattern, but don't be fooled. It is the most flimsy emery board I have ever seen! It started peeling away from the PAPER almost immediately when I used it and I didn't even get done with all ten fingers before it completely crumbled. It isn't sturdy enough to do its job.

Cute, but.....

this fell apart really quickly and was not at all effective. I'm glad that I didn't pay for it myself -- I can't believe that it is being offered for $5!! It looked better on my vanity and wasn't useful at all as a tool for filing my nails. Ruined after first use!

Try Something Else
Purchased

First product from Birchbox that I did not like. The file did not work well even on natural nails. The board split apart and the paper came off the board after a week. I tried to tape it and then glue it back on without success. Not worth the money.

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.

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.
