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.

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.

Not the best

Very cute print but unfortunately the board fell apart very quickly. Hardly got any use out of it and was disappointed.

Okay Product.

This emery board is large which is nice and you can never have too many emery boards but I would not repurchase this for $5. Much too expensive just for an emery board.

This was the Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board. In my opinion, it was not made very well. It did not last very long. I was pretty disappointed in it.

Disapointed

One of the few items I've ever been really disappointed once I used it a few times. The nail file did not hold up after just a few uses. I would not buy this product.

Looks Better Than it Works
Purchased

I wasn't very impressed with the durability of this nail file. It might work well for those with thinner nails, but it did not last very long for me. The only thing I did like was the cute floral pattern!

More of a fashion accessory
Purchased

I would use this more as a cute emery board to carry in my bag for emergency nail fixes, but not for normal routine manicures. The coating on both sides came of after just 1-2 filings and I didn't really feel that it was effective as other emery boards that I've used.

Totally fell apart
Purchased

This emery board fell apart as soon as I tried to use it. The files were very poorly glued on, and both of them started peeling off at the ends immediately. And the whole thing bends in half any time I grip it the wrong way. Really disappointing.
