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.

Not so great

I have my nail license so I regularly try new products for nail technicians. The grit on this file wore off so quickly on my own natural nails! I couldn't believe it. I was barely able to finish my own mani & pedi. I wouldn't use this product again and definitely not on anyone else's nails.

Looks pretty but I'm not buying it to look at

It was a good thing this came as a try me in the box. I got better results from dollar store files then from this and that is sad. It's a cute pattern and the little plastic case protector is nice touch but really the paper began to peel within a day and the board split after one use. I don't think I am a barbarian with my nails.They need to go back to the drawing board on this one. Save your money pick up some of the cheap files at a certain beauty store when you are standing in line, you would be more impressed.

Too flimsy

I was excited to get this because I really need a new one, but this was a disappointment. The board is too flimsy and really doesn't file well. It's nice a travel emery board but I wouldn't buy it over another product. The board should be stronger and the grit on the file should be, too.

Too Flimsy

This emery board bends too easily and does not hold up well to work well. The design is cute but that doesn't make up for not working well.

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.
