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.

Terrible

This file started coming apart the first time I used it on 2 fingernails. Not paying $5 for that! Not really up to Birchbox's standards. How did this even make it in?

IT BROKE!

Other than the grit on the nail file being far too fine and wearing off almost immediately, I barely got done filing ONE HANDS WORTH OF NAILS and the file broke in half! How does that happen!? I wasn't exerting a huge amount of pressure either!

Not the best - at all.

I used it twice and the gritty paper started peeling off. It was a pretty design, but I have an equally pretty one by sally hansen that doesn't cost $5.

Junk

this was a piece of junk! Fell apart immediately after I used it. Did not fix my nails or anything. The pattern is pretty, but that's about it.

Wasn't a fan

Sorry but I wasn't a fan. After one mild filing of both hands the board was worn down to the point it was unusable.

Not so much

I was excited to get a spare file for my purse since I have very long nails that I tend to chip a lot. I was disappointed that after just a few uses all of the grit was coming off of the emery board. I would not buy this.

Horrible.

Should be called "notmadewell" as it bends and comes apart when you try to use it. I would NEVER buy this brand of nail file EVER

Terrible

I thought this was so pretty and I was very excited to use it, but after a handful of uses the paper textured covering started peeling off the board, making it useless. I'll stick with my plain, ugly boards that work and last instead!

Doesn't last long

I used this maybe three times and it has no life left any longer. Sad because its so cute. :(

Definitely not "made-well"

Used it once and then the rough part started peeling away from the board and it was even placed neatly in the plastic case it came in.
