My nails grow at a ridiculous rate. So much so, that I generally keep at least one file by my computer so I can tend to upkeep whilst watching re-runs of old sit-coms on the internet.
So I was really excited to get this Madewell Emery Board in the mail.
Unfortunately, I basically "used it up" within a few days. For the occasional hang nail or snagged edge, it worked fine. But once I had used it for an actual manicure, going through all 10 fingernails, that was pretty much the end- the board's grit was all used up and could no longer file down any more nails.
With the other side the same thing happened, so I essentially got two full uses and had to toss it. Which made me sad, because it's really pretty and I liked it's little plastic case. If I were ever to get another one, I'd keep it in my purse and just use it for "spot fixes" and get one of those ugly flat brown emery boards for home manicure use ;)
