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.

Nothing Special

I didn't find anything special about this emery board. It does look really pretty but other than that you could do the same job with any other emery board.

Not very durable & very flimsy.

I dont know what all the raves are about on this one. This nail file was like a piece of cardboard with a sander on it. I didnt really like it to much, sorrry to say. This is my first complaint on a birchbox item, but no sweat because its only a nail file! Keep the other goodies comin!

Made not so well

I had to throw this out after one use. I gave myself a manicure and the emery board was falling apart before I was done. I have short nails, so I wasn't doing super heavy duty work. It was too bad because it was a really cute emery board.

Cute but not well made

This is a very cute file and I really like the holder/cover. Unfortunately, the file itself leaves a lot to be desired. It just didn't hold up... not even to very little use. It's just falling apart.

not impressed

Adorable floral pattern, but the file quality itself was extremely poor. I filed my nails just a few times before it was worn out. Not a good product, would never buy this.

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!
