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.

Cute, but Just Your Average File

This nail file looks just like it does in the photo. As a nail file, it's pretty standard; gets the job done! It's sturdier than most nail files, but other than that, it's nothing special.

Cute

This file is cute. Average file just like any other. The grit is a bit weak though, plus the design wears off quickly.

so-so

Nice file, just like any other that you would buy. The printed pattern on it does make it really cute.

Pretty Purse accessory- BUT

This is a cute little package for the quick fix on the go. However, the nail file doesn't last long. It's a great idea, but the file grit is weak.

Did not work well

The nail file did not work well on my nails and fell apart as I was using it. Pretty design, but not effective

Cute, but...

Nothing really special. It worked just like any other emery board I've tried, except it was definitely cuter than most that I've owned.

not durable

Initially I liked this emery board but long-term it doesn't not hold up well. It falls apart and quickly loses it's "emery board" roughness. It's pretty, it's cute, and can be used in a pinch but it's effectiveness lasts less than a month.

Average but cute

Who doesn't love a boho chic nail file?! Well, it's not my top priority accessory to make cuter, but hey, why not?! As far as nail files go, it's thick and sturdy which gives me confidence it will last. And it's not half bad looking either.

Seriously, it's just an emery board

Maybe I'm not just a nail fanatic, but I kind of feel like most emery boards are the same and this one was better than say ones from the dollar store but I definitely don't need fancy prints on an emery board to do the same job.
