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.

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.

Better off buying at the drug store

I have long, strong nails so I maintain nail files everywhere, just in case. I used this file twice and the grit was already starting to come off. But my friends with thinner nails are still enjoying the Madewell files they've got. Maybe it just works better with thinner nails.

Fair performance

The pink side of the board rubbed away with the first use. The floral side worked as any other emery board would.

Not much of an emery board

Not a fan of the board at all. Pretty to look at for sure, but it wasn't useful at all.

Fell apart

I gave it a good review after getting it in my box, but after using it for the 2nd or 3rd time the light pink sanding side ripped in several places. I've had to toss it since. :(
