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.

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.

nail file

this was basically your run of the mill average nail file. i dont know that i remember there being anything special about it. i used it until it stopped working. i wouldnt purchase for full price. the design was very pretty though.

floral print

this emery board is just as good as any other, but the fact that this one comes with the beautiful floral print makes me want to use it more often. i also like the fact that its came with its own case so that it wont scratch anything else, or get worn down any faster.
