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.

So what?

I suppose if I had a regular cheapo emery board and this floral one side-by-side and someone had a gun to my head, I'd take the floral one. Otherwise, who cares? Both make my nails get shorter.

Not one to knock a board...

but...this one is flimsy.

I love the pattern and was pleased to try it out when it arrived in my monthly BB, BUT, it doesn't last any longer than the cheapo boards that I can get at my local CVS (A package of boards for $5 or less).

While I save the heavy lifting for my harder nail files, this one wasn't really cutting the mustard for a quick reshape.

Just sayin...save your $$ for one of the other lovely things you can find here.

Didnt last

This emery board is super cute looking and i love the design but the board it self didnt last but a few times. I wouldnt buy this again due to the fact that after maybe using it 3-4 times the board was worn in and wouldnt file my nails. mind you i have shorter nails so I must use the outside edges to file my nails but just after 3-4 times of using it they no longer filed my nails . It was like paper

Pointless after the first week

This file lost all use after a week. No better than a dollar store file. I don't see why I would pay this much for something that doesn't have any grit after a week.

eh

Super cute!! But other then the first sentence there isnt much to say. One should assume that this file is a ONE TIME use only type nail file. This thing worked great, once.

Cute and useless

Maybe I left it in the car in the heat, but the emery paper came unstuck from the core. I've reused the sleeve tho, it keeps my other emery board from scratching stuff in my bag.

sorry but I do not like it

The reason I do not like this product is because I have gotten used to using a glass file. these type of files crack the edge of my nail so I get my nails splitting more often. Plus after a couple of uses I have to throw it away. While my glass file i just have to clean it and let it dry before using it again.

Worthless

The board wore out almost immediately. It wasn't firm enough to stay straight while in use. Overall, it was worthless.

Awful!

This nail file barely lasted through one minor touch-up session of my nails. The paper was peeling back and getting stuck under my fingernails the entire time I used it. I threw it away after one use because it was completely ruined.

Wore out on second use.

I have natural nails which grow quickly, so I was happy to get this cute looking nail file in my box. It started out working well, but as I used it, the grit on the file literally rubbed right off. By the second use, the file was covered with bare patches. Now before you start to think I abused the file, no such thing; I used the file on my bare natural nails, which are an average thickness and strength. I wonder if the reviews for this product are based on first impressions, and over time it's ratings will drop? I wouldn't pay the asking price for this file, because it's essentially a single use product.
