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.

Lovely, but not purchasing

This emery board was very smooth, and I love that I didn't feel like my nails were being sawed away. However, $5 for an emery board is a little too much for me; I don't usually spend much time on my nails unless I go get them done.

Super Cute, but not the most effective

I love the floral print on this emery board. Unfortunately, it has not held up especially well-it seems worn out after only a month.

Decent nail file

I have used it a handful of times and the file does not keep its roughness enough to really help file my nails. I was really excited to receive the product as I was in need of a file anyways but was disappointed that the usefulness was short lived.

pretty but doesn't last
Purchased

I got one or two uses out of this and would prefer something that's a little better made and not disposable. It tears really easy. It is cute but there are other cute patterned nail files out there that last longer. Tweezerman makes great ones.

OK

I have very short, thin nails and so I mostly use the edges of the file rather than the middle and it just didn't last that long, already pretty unable. It's more the cardboard part wearing out than the actual filing top.
I did like the cute pattern and the plastic cover, would travel well.

I mean...it's a nail file

Works fine, is pretty, though I'm not sure it's worth the $5. But if you get it in your Birchbox, it's a handy thing to keep around, definitely!

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.
