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.

3 Stars = It's OK

Eh... It's not bad but not great.
The less expensive ones at the store work just the same, if not a little better (because it's less than $5).

It's a great "leave at the office, just in case" nail file.
I wouldn't buy this or recommend it to a friend.

So so.

Not the best nail file in the world, not the worst. The grain seems light and the board seems flimsy. But as a massage therapist, I have to file my nails WAY down and file them often, so I need a pretty hardcore file that can take a beating. I hated the print on this, though. I don't get why super floral prints are coming back in style but that's just personal preference.

adorable

I loved this product. It is so cute to add to my purse and pull out when I need it. The design is sweet and not too obnoxious.

It's an emery board

Cute design. Nice grit. Does the job. Does the job well. Makes quick work of any filing job you have. Leaves my nails nice and smooth.

Nice board

I loved the pattern on board and was excited on the full size. I would be interested in purchasing that brand again.

So-So

Just your average emery board with a cute design. Mine bent in half after its second use. It's still usable though.

Did not file

Yes, the pattern is cute, and it will look adorable in your purse, but it does not file - it falls apart. I wish it could be cute AND work.

YUCK

I initially loved this adorable emery board. It's cute, it has a sleeve to make it easy to carry, and it is a full sized item. But after using it for less than a month, both sides have started peeling. I'm a gardener, so I have short nails that only require occasional maintenance, so to have it peeling in less than a month is ridiculous. DO NOT BUY.
