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.

Worst Nail File EVER!!

This nail file literally lasted ONE use. I noticed after about my second nail that the pink/flower was already rubbing off and with it any and all of the grit. The white was showing through and the nail file was cashed. I have many nail files from everywhere and have never had one last through only one use. Even the cheap drugstore ones that come in packs of ten or more last a lot longer than that. I would never buy this product, esp. for $5...wow!!!

Doesn't file nails, board scratches off

I gave this emery board an ok review after receiving it in my birchbox. Then i went to use it -- both sides just easily peeled off! Did they forget the emery board part? This file is SOFT. Ridiculous.

So upset about this!

I got this item in my birchbox and was at first very excited because it is such a cute pattern. However, when I try to file my nails with it, the pattern completely scratches off and it seems unable to even file my nails! It's completely soft. I'm very upset to have received such a useless product.

Completely nonfunctional

This emery board is seriously terrible. It's not coarse enough to really do anything, and even if it were - 1) it's basically obliterated after one use, and the pattern peels off, and 2) it's SOFT. Like, it conforms to my nail like some kind of memory foam mattress. Bends in a way that none of my other emery boards do and gets all crinkly.

The one star is for how cute it is. Because really, it's cute. I just wish it worked.

Bends easily, already peeling

I tested out this product and am not very satisfied. It bends very easily and the decorative part is already peeling after about 5 uses.

It was pretty but only good for one use

When I was using it it seems as though the file only was good for one file. After it wouldnt file anything!!!! Overall not something id buy. I'm reviewing it again after my first review because it is not filing anything anymore after filing my nails once.

Worst nail file ever!!

Although the nail file is cut & comes in a nice plastic sleeve- it is horrible! It's almost a one time use file. The emery board is almost completely gone from any spots on the file that you use. The sides also start to peel up immediately, making it almost impossible to use! Also the price is ridiculously high- $5 for 1 nail file?! I'm glad this came as an added extra in my birchbox otherwise I would be VERY disappointed!

Not useful

The day I got this I whipped it out to use on a chipped nail. When I went to file my nail the top fell off! Such a waste of a sample

This fell

Apart the first time I used it. I am not rough with my files and was filing natural nails and the print started to peel off.. Fine for a sample but NOT WORTH purchasing!

Eh

It isn't coarse at all. It wasn't effective. I will not purchase at all. The only thing I did like was the print.
