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 but didn't last

Really liked the design, but started peeling after a few uses. Also, the file became dull way to quickly. Disappointing.

Fell apart

I am particular about my nails, but have been slacking off for a while now, so I was excited to get a file I could carry with me in my bag. I was sadly disappointed, the emery started falling apart and coming off with use. I have thin nails that peel so it's not even like it was too much use or very hard nails.

Didn't last through one use

This emery board was included in my March box. I was all excited, as I thought it was a cute design and I could toss it in my purse for use as needed. Too bad the file did not keep it's sandy texture as I filed my nails. This is a pretty nail file, but don't expect it to hold up for more than a couple of short fixes on your nails.

Pretty but ineffective

It started peeling the third time I used it. It's a cute design, but it's definitely not worth the cost.

Shredded after a few uses

I'm glad this was included in a recently birchbox monthly subscription and that I didn't purchase it. It literally started shredding within a few uses. I don't think I've ever had that problem before!

deteriorates

I was not very satisfied with this emery board because each time i used it, the texture came off of the place where i rubbed my nail. So after i use one place, per nail, i'm left with an emery board that cant be used for very long. sad :(

not impressed

Pretty much good for one use. Not a very good emery board. Sorry to say but I've gotten ones that held up better from the dollar store. Will not purchase this item.

Worst nail file

Hands down this is the worst file I have ever used. Threw it away part way through filing my nails. The texture filed right off leaving a smooth ineffective filing surface & then the paper started peeling off the board. Definitely not worth $5!!!!

Pretty

Does what it should. I love the pretty print :) Keep this in my purse and use it all the time.

Not the best

I found that it was dull or shredded after one use. The edges were unusable as the kept bending. I prefer a sturdy file though, perhaps for light buffing, this may have worked better.
