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.

there's better

The nail file did not last long for me. The paper begin to peel after the first use. The design are pretty but not worth the price. I found a better file for less.

Fell Apart in 1 day!!

I received this in one of my boxes and tried it instantly. I love the pattern and how cute it looked in my purse but after two uses it fell apart. The emery board separated from the foam center. I was extremely disappointed :(

More for looks

This emery board is definitely cute, and I like that it came in a sleeve so it doesn't scratch anything up in my purse. However, the quality of the board seems low. After the first use, it looked and felt like it had been used several times. This might only last a handful of nail touch ups. Bummer.

Low quality nail file

The edges started to separate after only using it once. It's too flimsy so it makes filing your nails a long process.

pretty...and weak.

I thought this board was beautiful, but it wore out after just a few uses. Was a great sample, but I'd never spend money on another.

meh

Well it worked for a bit but it was used up quickly. I'm glad I received it as a sample because I wouldn't spend money on it.

Flimsy

It's super cute, but super flimsy. I found that it bends very easily when trying to file my natural nails.

Looks Pretty But Doesn't Do It's Job

The print on this emery board is perfect but after a nail and a half the print came off along with the texture. Now all I have is a smooth white board that does nothing. Hopefully they will fix it to last longer but for now I would not spend money on this product and DO NOT recommend it.

Cute but wore out

The positive reviews on here have me wondering if my emery board was defective. I loved the design and am a huge fan of Madewell, but it didn't seem to be coated properly. As soon as I filed my nails once, the emery coating disintegrated in that spot. So unfortunately, it was really only good for a few uses, which was such a shame because I was excited to carry it around in my purse.

Not too impressed

This was an okay emery board. I don't really want to use it because it is so cute! But its just an emery board, nothing special.
