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.

I don't think this board functions any better than most salon style emery boards. It is rather pretty, and it has a slim case, making it easier to carry in a purse, but it's pretty average.

I bought this as a gift for my step mother and she loves how long it lasts! Plus it has such a great design on it. Definitely recommend this nail file

It's OK.

This nail file is definitely pretty, but it didn't last long. Kept it at work since that's when my nails love to chip, but after a few uses, it no longer filed my nail.

Not really "made well"

Even with the plastic protective sheath, the emery board sticker came right off the board within a few uses. Total waste.

Cute file...Careful Usage

I love the floral print of this file. However, I have used it so often that it is starting to fray & fall apart around the edges! This has never happened with any of my other files...

Adorable not functional

I "borrowed" this nail file from my sister who received it in her birchbox a long time ago. I've had it since she got it and put it in my makeup bag so I could use it every time I break a nail (which is often since I live in a dry climate). This file has lost all of its roughness and is basically useless now. It also wasn't particularly course to begin with, so it took a lot more effort to shape scraggly nails.

Cute!

I love this nail file. It is super cute, and it comes in a plastic case for easy travel. I enjoy using it, and it looks cute in my purse.

Very Cute!

A girl can never have too many nail files! And this one is very cute! The plus side- this nail file has a smooth side for a finishing touch.

Terrible

I thought this board was super cute when it arrived and was very excited to use it. Unfortunately, it ripped within five seconds of using it. It is flimsy and did nothing for my nails. I do not recommend spending money on this product.

It does the trick - nothing really special about it - its what you expect it to be.
