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.

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.

Did not like it.

I also found this file to be relatively useless. I did not get through a one time use. I had to pull out a file that looks similar but is much sturdier, to finish the job I started with this file.

cute but doesn't do the trick

Not a fan of one hit wonders. I like a product to have punch and shine and this only offers the shine. Basic emery board at it's best is $1 at your local Walgreens and same quality.

lackluster

I was excited to use the emery board, but within 15 seconds of first use, the paper began to peel away in several locations. I expected much better quality and was very disappointed.
