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.

Poor Quality

Yes, it's cute! BUT...after the second use, the grit was gone and it no longer did the job. It also bent really easily - mine has three creases in it already.

Disappointed

I was really disappointed that this was one of my samples. It's a pretty emery board, but you can get one anywhere and it's definitely nothing "new" to me.

Perfect for my purse

The nail file is perfect to be able to throw into my purse and stylish that my friends ask where I have gotten the file.

It was cute but not better than that.

This board was really cute but not exceptionally functional. It wore out in the middle of my first use. I did like the cover that came with it.

I think it's beautiful!

Very beautiful nail file and it does it's job very well... for my nails anyway. It is a great addition to my purse. $5 for a nail file is a tad expensive, but it's worth it because it's so pretty.

Better off buying at the drug store

I have long, strong nails so I maintain nail files everywhere, just in case. I used this file twice and the grit was already starting to come off. But my friends with thinner nails are still enjoying the Madewell files they've got. Maybe it just works better with thinner nails.

Cute print

Decent emery board, but the print is super cute! It cheers me up when I'm cleaning up what remains of a broken nail.

Great nail file

Doesn't seem like this nail file will need replacing for awhile! The design is also really cute and it comes in a cute little portable case.

Love it!

I love the cute floral pattern on the emery board. The double sided file makes it easy to shape my nails.

Pretty and Effective

This is the prettiest emery board I've ever seen! And it has really good traction/works great. Using it makes nail care more fun :)
