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.

For being "madewell" it wasn't

It was a very cute nail file, but as soon as I used it the emery part rubbed off. I only used it one time before it stopped being effective.

Just another emery board. . .

Eh..it was another emery board. . . I have 10 more just like it. I surely wouldn't pay $5 for it when I can get one for under a dollar at the local store.

OK

Really cute pattern, but I prefer glass/ceramic files because I think they actually help to strengthen my nails. Also, this file is expensive since in my mind, it doesn't do anything more than the cheap, tradition brown ones.

Cute, but...

Nail file was so cute, yet it fell apart so to speak. The sides frayed and it hardly files anymore.

Just okay

The design on this nail file was great, perfect for spring! However, the quality is very poor. I used it once and it was peeling and coming apart. I was dissapointed.

Not a very good file

This file is pretty for sure and I really like the plastic sleeve it came in. But that's about it. Its one of those shiny plastic surfaces, that don't really file all that well. Also its the same texture on both sides instead of a coarse side/fine side.

Cute but not up to par

I gave this a 2 because it's adorable,however,it's not much good after a few uses. I wanted to love it but it just doesn't perform as I expected.

cute but expensive

If it werent 5 dollars, I'd totally pick some up to give to my friends. The pattern they sent was a little blah, but I think they have other cute patterns. Use them on my nails & it seemed to do the job.

Cheap

Upon first glance this nail file is totally cute. However, that's all it has going for it. I used it to file down a small snag and the file bent from the middle. I tried the other side and got the same result. Overall, if I am in a dire emergency, maybe I'll pull it out. Better yet, my kids might like playing with it instead.
