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.

These emery boards are nice on the nails, however they don't last long. I have had much cheaper boards last through twice as many filings. The one nice thing is I can keep the plastic cover for future boards and they don't get covered in gunk and ink from my desk drawer or pen cup!

So cute but didn't last very long.

The pattern on this emery board was adorable but after one use I felt like it was falling apart. It may just be one that i keep in my purse for emergency nail fixes.

Cute, but not too functional

Great addition to the box. It's charming, on trend with the floral design, and I wasn't embarrassed to pull it out and file away. My problem is that for the price of the emery board, the quality should be better. It didn't last as long as some of my cheaper boards have. With emery boards I personally prefer function over aesthetics.

Cute!

Filing my nails gives me the willies, so I put off using this until I needed it for my Incoco polish sample and didn't mind it, which is high praise for a nail file. Gritty enough to do the job but not gritty enough to give me chills with every swipe. Plus, it's adorable!

Not a fan

These nail files are very fine and don't work very well. I'd rather use a $2 double sided one from the drug store that has a fine side and a rough side. They are far more effective.

nothing extraordinary

Nothing particularly great, works as it should. It is slightly less rough than normal emery boards, but works just as well.

An emery board is an embery board is an emery board

Besides the pretty flower pattern, I see no discernible difference between this emery board and any other I have owned previously. I would not go out of my way to buy this. Especially if it cost more than regular. I won't be wearing this so, what's the point.

Nothing special

I would NEVER pay $5 for an emery board but am grateful for receiving it in my box as I needed a new one! ;-)

Cute

This was a cute emery bord and worked just like any other emery bord. I liked that it was included in my box to help in the application of the nail stickers.

Needs to last longer

So I received this in last months box. As of today, the emery board is bent in half. After two weeks of use (about once every three days) it got its first snag in the actual emery part and tore. I tried flipping to the other side, and it ended up doing the same thing. I have another emery board that I have had for 6 months and it is in perfect condition still.
