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.

Did not last long

I thought this nail board looked really cute when it came. However it did not last too long as shortly after the flowers started coming off.

Cute but didn't last

The emery board had a cute floral pattern, but it started to come apart the first time I used it.

Not as abrasive as I imagined it would be.

This emery board was the most beautiful board I've ever had, came in a cool plastic protective sleeve but I wasnt impressed with the courseness or abrasiveness of the board. Super pretty tho!

not a solid emery board

I was happy to see two of my favorite companies come together for this product, but it fell short of expectations. I liked the floral print and the resuable plastic case, but when I went to file my nails, the rough outer sanding layer started to bubble up and peel off the inner part of the board. I would probably not buy another one. I wish it were sturdier.

Soft but friable

I used this 2 times before the ends started fraying and peeling back, actually causing more damage to the fragile skin around my nails! Although it was soft and gentle on nails it was not well made. Will not buy.

Doesn't cut it

Perhaps I just have really strong nails, but this emery board didn't work well on my nails. The first few times I used it, it worked great, but after that it would bend and seemed worn down already.

Cute but...

I was excited to receive an Emery board in my March box. It was cute and girly. However just after a couple of uses the layers were ripping and peeling off. Don't waste your money!

Eh

Not a fan. The pattern is super cute and fun but it wore down and started to fray really quick. I liked the sleeve it came in, but not something I would buy. I ended up throwing it away.

Cute Emery Board

Although this emery board is uber cute, it tore my nails up. Not a big fan of traditional files, but I thought maybe this one was different. Will def be sticking w/ my glass file.

pretty but not worth it

pretty but not as effective as more basic emery boards I have. I love pretty emery boards but have yet to find one that works as well as the basic models. Someone mentioned peeling which I agree with. It is just okay in terms of how well it works compared to others but it is very pretty.
