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.

Who shot the couch?

I always appreciate having a nail file within reach, but after a few tries with the Madewell board, I had to give up. The grit seemed too heavy, & the design made the board skip & catch unpleasantly at my nails. It was awfully large, which made it hard to handle & not particularly handy to stash just anywhere. The eighties/early-nineties print did *not* endear--is this a "pretty new pattern?" No thanks, all around.

Good for One Use

This seems to have a pretty high review. So maybe mine was "faulty" but I am nail obsessed, and the grit on this came off on my first use. i have used 99 cent emery boards in the past that have lasted longer. At first I though it was just the usual white lines over the design, but nope, the grit was completely gone, and as smooth as a baby's bottom. Again from the 4 star average it looks like maybe this was just me, but I was not impressed.

I wouldn't pay 50 cents for this

this file is NOT worth $5!! I would never ever purchase this. I have files that cost less and are still useful. This file fell apart after one use, the paper started peeling.

Found this emery board deficient.

I received the emery board as part of my Birchbox gift. It fell apart after only 3 uses. Very disappointing

Worst nail file

This is the worst nail file I ever used! I been using this nail file for less then a month and the paper on it is already damaged, so it makes almost impossible to use. Unless you have really long nail, because only in the middle of the file is still good. Don't waist your money on it!

Cheap product

I used this nail file one time and the coating came completely off. I would not recommend this product.

Terrible quality

Does not file my nails very well. I would try to file them and the emery board was not strong enough. Also it fell apart around the edges.

Cute pattern but doesn't last!

Super cute pattern on this board, but it's useful life is short-lived. After having used this a few times it has all worn down and no longer files my nails. A shame since I loved the pattern :(

Just an emery board...and not a great emery board, but nice sleave

The Madewell emery board was a disappointing sample. Who needs another emery board? What next? Floss? ...Please don't take that as a suggestion.

The Madewell emery board is not even a particularly good emery board. It wore out quickly and wasn't (I'm going there) made well. The flower pattern isn't especially attractive. The best part about it was the sleeve. Seriously, I kept the nice plastic sleeve after I threw away the board. Nothing special here. Move along.
