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.

Pretty... but nothing special

I love the choice of pattern- classy floral- and I'm proud to carry this around in my purse. It even comes with a cute case to put it in! My only complaint is that the pattern started peeling off of the side that was exposed. I've never had a nail file do that before. :(

Cute but not the best emery board

This was a cute surprise in my first Birchbox. I love Madewell and floral design so I thought how perfect? Turns out the board is just a cute tool. It doesn't do the best job filing my nails. I still keep it in my work bag for quick touch ups when I'm on the go. The plastic sleeve is really nice too because it doesn't scratch anything else in the bag.

cheerful and useful

I don't "tend" to my nails much, unless they are jagged, or I have extra cash for a manicure (maybe 2x a year). So this is probably a necessary tool for me. I don't like the feeling of a file, in general, so even though my mom showed me how to use one, I never did. This one is a little more cheerful and inspirational than the traditional bronze sand color...so maybe I will use it.

Short Use

This product although cute in design did not last in use very long. I usually purchase nail filers that can last up to 10 uses.

ok

It was very pretty and I liked the plastic container, but it broke easily. Served it's purpose as far as what it is meant to do.

It's okay.

I got this in my first box. It looks really cute and the little case is handy for putting in your purse, however, the grain seems kind of weak.

A Good Tool!!

Generally, I am a fan of glass files only. However, with its gay pattern and fine grit surface, this file won me over. Durable and useful, this was a welcome item in my box.

works well

This product works well. I'm not a huge fan of Nail Boards, but it is a beautiful design and seems higher quality than many brands by comparison.
