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.

your basic emery board

I don't think this board functions any better than most salon style emery boards. It is rather pretty, and it has a slim case, making it easier to carry in a purse, but it's pretty average.

It's OK.

This nail file is definitely pretty, but it didn't last long. Kept it at work since that's when my nails love to chip, but after a few uses, it no longer filed my nail.

It does the trick - nothing really special about it - its what you expect it to be.

Decent

This a good emery board. Nothing really special about it, pretty much the same as other boards I have purchased. The pattern on it was nice.

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.
