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 and handy!

This file is really fun and handy for your purse. I love the floral design! It works as well as any nail file and it's awesome that the sample was full size.

Fell apart after one use

Did not like this at all...while pretty, it fell apart easily after one use on my hands. The outer layer peeled up and it had to be tossed - pretty ineffective.

Cute and useful

Didn't realize I even needed one until I got it and now I carry it in my purse for fixes. Really cute design!

Does the job

This works as advertised - cute design. Not sure it's worth paying 10x what you'd pay for a drug store emery board.

Pretty cool

I actually enjoyed getting this file in my March Birchbox... While I normally prefer a glass file for everyday use, they do break so in an emergency its great to have an extra. Even though I'm pretty obsessed with my nails (I would give myself a mani everyday if I had the time, so a few times a week is about what I manage lol), I do break a nail every now and then, so throwing this in my purse is perfect, especially since it has a cover so it doesn't scrape against anything important. And let's not forget about the adorable Madewell floral pattern! It makes a broken nail not feel like the end of the world.

Worthless

This nail filer doesn't smooth, file, or do anything! A pretty design and casing but offers nothing for the nails! For $5 you would expect a lot more from a nail file.

A smooth, pretty file ideal to throw in your purse

This file is very smooth, not rough on your nails at all. The flowers are a nice touch. The carrying case is also a plus as not to scratch other items in your bag.

Love it!

I am the woman who always has a nail file in her bag. The print is cute and it does the job. Therefore I am a happy woman.
