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 design!

I liked the design and the cover, however it wasn't anything special outside of those two qualities. I don't think I would purchase in the future.

great file!

Very cute and easy filing with no jagged edges or over-filing. Love it!

Just OK

I was really excited when I saw this in my birchbox since a girl's always gotta have a nail file. The adhesive didn't work and the file was all bubbly. I used it like 3 times and the grit was all gone. For $5 I think there are better files out there.

Pretty emery board

I loved the pretty floral design on one side of the emery board and the soft pink color on the other side, but beyond that, this was a typical nail file. I probably won't be repurchasing, but not because there was anything wrong with it, just because it wasn't anything extraordinary. I love the Birchbox partnership with Madewell, though!

Poor Quality

As far as nail files go, I loved the look of this one, but not the durability. The filing paper is peeling off of the board and ripping along the edges. I did like the carrying case though, so while I ended up tossing the file, I kept the case and just use it for a better quality nail file.

cute but doesn't do the trick

Not a fan of one hit wonders. I like a product to have punch and shine and this only offers the shine. Basic emery board at it's best is $1 at your local Walgreens and same quality.

lackluster

I was excited to use the emery board, but within 15 seconds of first use, the paper began to peel away in several locations. I expected much better quality and was very disappointed.

Same as any other

I thought the emery board was pretty. As far as function i think it worked the same as an other emery board out in the market. There was nothing unique about it.
