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.

Flimsy emery board

I always carry an emery board with me, as hang nails drive me crazy. I was excited about this cute pattern to tote with me. However, I felt that the emery board really was too flimsy and its coarseness was limited. After using it just a few times, the grooves of the board had already warn out. Other products in your local drug store perform better.

Ok File

The design on the file was very cute but overall this was not as sturdy as I would have liked.

okay

I got this in my birchbox and was kind of dissapointed. I use emory boards a lot and I like my stronger than this one. it just seemed kind of weak and seems like it wont last long.

Just OK

I was really excited when I saw this in my birchbox since a girl's always gotta have a nail file. The adhesive didn't work and the file was all bubbly. I used it like 3 times and the grit was all gone. For $5 I think there are better files out there.

Poor Quality

As far as nail files go, I loved the look of this one, but not the durability. The filing paper is peeling off of the board and ripping along the edges. I did like the carrying case though, so while I ended up tossing the file, I kept the case and just use it for a better quality nail file.

Sooooo cute

But it wore down after one use. The flower print was completely amazing, but all of the rough pebbles wore off after one use.

Nice packaging but just nothing special

The nail file has a pretty little flower pattern and a nice clear sleeve, but it's just a nail file, and it works nicely as one, but I would not pay $5 for one file.

Much prefer the 10 cent boards from CVS

While I loved the fun pattern on the board I would never trade my 20 for 2 dollar pack of emery boards for this one. It did not seem to have enough roughness to shape my nails like the cheap ones do.

Short lived beauty- Madewell inspired Nail Emery Board

The Madewell inspired nail emery board was such a surprise in my box. Although I am not the most talented nail technician , I do enjoy shaping manicuring every once in a while. This emery board was extremely cute but the condition of the board suffered by its third use. The sides started to come apart from each other and the board began to tear. I think it would be an improvement if the rough side had more of a distinction from the smooth side.

Disappointed

I was really disappointed that this was one of my samples. It's a pretty emery board, but you can get one anywhere and it's definitely nothing "new" to me.
