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.

I received in my box a few months ago. After only a few uses, it is already starting to come apart at the edges. Looks super cute, but not particularly functional.

Dulls too quickly

I thought it was super cute when I got this in my box, but it just doesn't last. I found that after a few uses it was worn down and unusable. I've bought better at the drugstore for cheap.

Love the design - hate the quality

The design of this nail file was adorable..unfortunately the actual quality of the product wasn't great. The file was pretty week and barely filed my nails.

Not my favorite

I didn't care too much for the emery board. It cracked and bent as I was trying to use it. Will not be purchasing this item, although I did like the pattern/design. Good concept.

Cute design but didn't last

Adorable floral design and packaging. Surprised that after a few uses it sort of fell apart. Both sides have a very thin layer of of emery paper so that when you file your nails, it cuts through the paper. You are then left with the several tears on the pretty design. I was able to get about 5 uses out of it before I threw it out. Like the idea of a design on a nail file, but poor execution.

Not my favorite.

I'm a fan of glass files, have been for a few years. It worked well enough, but it didn't hold up as well as I would have liked. I kept it in the plastic sheath, but after a while of traveling around with me the rough sanding part of the board started to peel off. Cute and charming yes, but not my style.

Not the best nail file I've ever used

I was very excited to receive this adorable nail file in my box. However, when I used the file, its quality left much to be desired. After filing all of my nails, large parts of the file were missing any and all grit. Also, I wasn't filing very hard but left large dents in the file all over. Over all I was disappointed that I wasn't able to enjoy such a cute product.

not very sturdy

The nail file itself was adorable so I started using it right away. Within minutes the finish wore off on the nail file making it unusable. Very disappointing.

Not very sturdy

I tried this emery board thinking it was like the others I have but was in for a rude awakening when I used it. The floral design portion tore right off and it broke into two pieces. The pieces were still attached but were held together by part of the outer layer. It may have worked better on my fingernails but I used it on my toe. Disappointed.

cute but just an emery board

Super cute print and I liked that it had its own sleeve, but at the end of the day it's nothing outstanding. I'm glad it was in my box but I think I would only purchase this as a gift.
