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.

really pretty, but...

This emery board is beautiful and so so girly. It even has it's own case, which is wonderful, but I really only use glass nail files anymore. They last so much longer.

I received this as a sample in my box. I wish i would have gotten a nail polish instead. You can buy these anyway and much cheaper.. a little disappointed...

SO SO

I was excited...I mean what girl doesn't love an emery board? I was disappointed by how fast it actually wears down while filing your nails :-(

Super cute

Cute nail file to just throw in your bag! Convenient, gets the job done, and fun. Perfect for the purposes of traveling or when you need to fix a nail you've messed up at work.

Not the best but did the job

I think I was expecting a stronger, more long-lasting file. I think the grade of it was just lighter. The edges peeled very quick so I didn't keep it very long.

Cute, but non functional
Sampled

Super cute. Looks great it my accessory bowel. However every time I reach for it, I remember that it does NOT work. Not durable in any way. Falls apart like paper.

Came apart
Purchased

I purchased one of these to carry in my purse because it was so cute. It did not last long though for it came apart, the file came unglued. Cute while it lasted though.

Not made so well
Sampled

I liked the plastic sheathe this came in for travel, but this file started to peel from each end almost immediately. The pattern is very pretty but I would rather not have a pattern if it meant having a better quality file. It was also not rough enough to get a good shape; it seemed more like a buffer than a file.

Cute but...

Very cute, but it fell apart after a few uses. I got it in a Birchbox so I'm glad I didn't pay for it.
