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.

So cute but didn't last very long.

The pattern on this emery board was adorable but after one use I felt like it was falling apart. It may just be one that i keep in my purse for emergency nail fixes.

Cute, but not too functional

Great addition to the box. It's charming, on trend with the floral design, and I wasn't embarrassed to pull it out and file away. My problem is that for the price of the emery board, the quality should be better. It didn't last as long as some of my cheaper boards have. With emery boards I personally prefer function over aesthetics.

Cute, but not sturdy!

I was very excited to get this in my Birchbox...cute nail file for my purse, springy and who doesn't need another nail file? I was extremely disappointed with the quality of this file...both sides started tearing and splitting after two uses. I'd never spend $5 on a nail file that falls apart so quickly. I gave it two stars for its adorable look, that's it.

Too Cute to Last

My first impression of this nail file was it's adorable floral print. I thought it was very cute and packaged well. After using it once to file my nails I was sad when it was already worn down. I still have it in my purse in case of an emergency, but the file is pretty much 'used up' after only one use.

Cute!

Filing my nails gives me the willies, so I put off using this until I needed it for my Incoco polish sample and didn't mind it, which is high praise for a nail file. Gritty enough to do the job but not gritty enough to give me chills with every swipe. Plus, it's adorable!

Fun!

This was a fun accessory to get in my box. I received it just before I was going on a trip so I packed it and carried it around with me. My nails chip and tear a lot, so it was nice to have a way to deal with the rough edges when I was out and about.

Cute, easy to spot in my bag

It's a emery board, it's works as expected but additionally it's a good grit and is cute. A nice extra you know you'll need and like.

Not a fan

These nail files are very fine and don't work very well. I'd rather use a $2 double sided one from the drug store that has a fine side and a rough side. They are far more effective.

It did my husbands nails.

This thing is amazing. It works so well. I filled down my husbands nails with this thing and his are bad! I will say this though, The bored pealed up quicker than I expected. Its cute and I loved the clear cover that came with it so it wouldn't scratch up my other products in my purse.
