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.

Couldn't even file one nail

This is the only product from birch box that I have gotten that ended up directly in the trash. The board fell apart on contact.

Terrible

I threw this away after a few nails. The pink rubbed off immediately and was useless. surprised it made the BirchBox cut to be quite honest.

cheap

Fell apart quickly. The emory surfaces are just thin, cheap layers of paper attached to the board. I can't imagine paying $5 for this.

Not really "made well"

Even with the plastic protective sheath, the emery board sticker came right off the board within a few uses. Total waste.

Terrible

I thought this board was super cute when it arrived and was very excited to use it. Unfortunately, it ripped within five seconds of using it. It is flimsy and did nothing for my nails. I do not recommend spending money on this product.

Pretty, but useles

The grit wore off of this on first use. I've had much cheaper emery boards that last far longer. I was disappointed given Madewell's reputation for quality.

Cheap

After a few uses, the emery board started falling apart. I think I'll stick to the cheaper emery boards since they last a lot longer.

Pretty but not made well

edges split, grit wore off after one use. There was not a big difference between grit on either side. Pretty is not enough if the functionality is not there

Very pretty, but does not work well
Purchased

I used this emery board once and most of the grit has fallen off where I used it. Seems to very expensive for a one time use.

May be cute...

This is the worst nail file I've ever used. After using this file about 5 times, the grit has almost completely fallen off and the paper is peeling away from the spine. The floral pattern is charming for sure, but your money would be better spent on just about any other nail file out there.
