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 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.

Not the sturdiest...

A very pretty emery board, but I felt like the grain was barely there and after a few filings of my thin and very short nails, it was sort of worthless :(

An emery board is an emery board is an emery board

Not much to review, it does what it's supposed to do. Unless you're a super girly girl, who cares whether or not it has flowers on it (or any other design for that matter)? No way I'd pay $5 for an emery board.

Cute, but not great

I was so excited to use this because it matches the season and I was in desperate need for a new nail file. Unfortunately, this had to be the worst nail file I have ever used. It took forever to shape my nail. When I use other files, it only takes about a minute. After filing all my nails once, there is barely anymore friction to the point that I definitely can't use this again. So disappointed.

Not great

I don't know if it's because I've gotten so used to crystal nail files but I felt like this emery board wasn't very good. It IS cute though. Maybe my nails are too strong for it or something but I felt like it wasn't rough or strong enough. I tried to fix a broken nail with it and it took me forever.
