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.

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.

Basic Nail File

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

Pretty, but useles

The grit wore off of this on first use. I've had much cheaper emery boards that last far longer. I was disappointed given Madewell's reputation for quality.

Pretty - pretty ordinary.

It's a $5 emory board that works about as well as the ones I get from the dollar store. I got it with my points so it didn't cost me anything, otherwise I might not have gone for it. It is pretty and comes in a nice clear plastic case, though!

Decent

This a good emery board. Nothing really special about it, pretty much the same as other boards I have purchased. The pattern on it was nice.

This emery board was nothing special. Although I loved the design it fell apart more quickly than most. The file separated from the board on the 4th time use. I wouldn't pay this for a product that doesn't last.

Great! Love the product!

This is such a cute emery board. I love carrying around things in my purse that when I pull out people immediately ask where I get it!
