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.

Terrible

This file started coming apart the first time I used it on 2 fingernails. Not paying $5 for that! Not really up to Birchbox's standards. How did this even make it in?

Cute design

I loved the cute Madewell design. I liked that it was long and I will probably have this emery board for a long time.

Reasonable price, fun design

I probably wouldn't purchase this on it's own BUT I loved receiving it in my birchbox and still use it even months later.

It was cute, but didn't really FILE so much.

Now, I LOVED the cute floral pattern on this nail file. But, the grain didn't seem to be very effective? I have thin nails, so most nail files work just fine. And, I mean, this one DID work, it just was a little too smooth and took more filing than usual for me.

IT BROKE!

Other than the grit on the nail file being far too fine and wearing off almost immediately, I barely got done filing ONE HANDS WORTH OF NAILS and the file broke in half! How does that happen!? I wasn't exerting a huge amount of pressure either!

SO cute!

This emery board is almost too adorable to use! Looks great sitting on my nightstand and works even better. Makes me love all things Madewell even more!

Pretty but not very functional

I really wanted to like this emery board, but from the first time I used it, there was almost no grit -- it felt like I was rubbing my nail against a piece of slightly bumpy plastic.

Not the best - at all.

I used it twice and the gritty paper started peeling off. It was a pretty design, but I have an equally pretty one by sally hansen that doesn't cost $5.

emery board

I dont have nails but when I try to grow them out i like to use the emery board to make the nails stronger. I love the flowers on the board.

Cute pattern, but that's about it

A fan of Madewell, so looked forward to this product especially. The print was cute and original, but the emery board peeled and was rough on my nails. Snagged more often than not. Hoping it would've have been more high-quality.
