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.
It's super cute, but super flimsy. I found that it bends very easily when trying to file my natural nails.2
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.2
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.2
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.2
It comes in a handy plastic sleeve and has an adorable floral pattern... but aesthetics aside, the functionality doesn't hold up. The first time I used this file, the emery grit flaked off and the sides frayed.
I'll be sticking with my cheap CVS boards.
All these great reviews have me thinking I recv. a defected one. After a few uses..it started to fall apart. I wasnt even sure which side to use because neither is really abrasive. I'm new to filing my nails but this did not hold up at all. It came in my birch box and I would not recommend it at all.2
Not sure if this was because it was a sample but the file didn't last more than a few weeks and I don't file my nails THAT much. Worked great for about a week or so but wore down pretty fast.2
The edges of the file began to fray within the first week. It didn't last nearly as long as some of my other files.2
This board had the fatal flaw that many this style have. When you rest it vertically against a counter-top, hold your finger still, and quickly swipe the board back and forth to file the nail, the bottom edge of the board peels up and comes unglued, making it impossible to file your nail.
I know this isn't the only way to file a nail, but it's fast and efficient, and I've found other boards that can stand their ground with this method. So unfortunately this board won't work for me.
Not a fan of this emery board. It started to fall apart after the first use. I did like the pretty flower design though.2
