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.

Cute but not functional

I wanted this product to be great because it's so cute but unfortunately that's where the good review ends. It doesn't file your nails (it doesn't even soften the edges) the paper peels back and it snaps in half after about two uses. Skip this product, no one really needs to see a cute nail file in your purse anyway.... just file your nails at home with a boring black one.

More style than substance

The emery board was cute and I liked the packaging, but after only a few uses, the filing surfaces began peeling off.

Love this cute, chic emery board

I keep this in my desk and use it all the time. It's not to rough like some emery boards. The design also doesn't scratch off as you use it. Love it!

pretty patterned junk

I totally have no problem with people filing a nail in public, I guess it was how I was raised, and this file is very attractive-looking. However, it is not very well made. The paper delaminated from the board, and got dull very quickly (even with the plastic cover kept on). Cheap emery boards work much better, even though they are not nearly as attractive.

cheap quality

I was not impressed with this nail file. It started falling apart after just a couple of uses. I was a bigger fan of the Tweezerman file they gave away earlier!

Great to keep in the purse

I love the fact that this emory board has a cover. It is perfect size to keep in my purse and the cover keeps everything from coming off.

adorable

The cutest of cute. What a great accessory to toss into your bag in times of emergency. I absolutely love this because you never know when you're going to need an emery board.

Nice emery board

What can I say - it gets the job done? Cute pattern and very sturdy - I'll be able to keep it in my makeup box for a while.
